Michelin Energy Saver + tyres are rated A in terms of energy efficiency for European tyre labels and the Company claims one full tank out of 5 can be directly attributed to tyres, as overall fuel consumption can vary by 0.4l/100 km between an A and F label tyre – representing fuel savings of 168 litres over the tyre life cycle (approx. 45,000 km).
