it was below 45f this morning, and all 4 tires were 5 pounds less...that could be about 5% to 10% less fuel efficiency.

Yes..... Also watch you don't get any snow into your fuel filler tube, when refueling. Get some extra following distance if there is Snow under your tires!

Yes I aired up one vehicle, front tires need 5# each and the rear 3.5 each boosted. Never checked the spare since 2001... onto to know it's there.
