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

not today, but I do regularly...the question should be: do the tire pressure sensors on cars ever work properly? Why are they always on (so it seems).

Very good Idea! and check the wiper blades for split ends. That sounds feministic, OH well! Look at your battery cable connections also(condition). G-Luck.....

I found out a neighbour is removing some air from 1 tire each week. I live in a condo complex. I wish I could catch him or her?

I need to adjust all my vehicles tire pressure. My truck is OK until it falls below 0. It has already been there and they are low then.
