NASHVILLE, Tenn.
– To raise awareness for proper tire care and maintenance, Nissan is celebrating National Tire Safety Week from May 29 to June 4 by reminding vehicle owners of the significant role tires play in keeping them safe on the road.

Research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration1 indicates a tire that is 25 percent below its recommended pressure is almost three times more likely to be involved in a tire-related crash than a properly inflated tire. Low tire inflation also costs vehicle owners money over the long term in reduced fuel economy and premature tire wear.

AMA-logo-230PICKERINGTON, Ohio – The proposed 2017 Renewable Fuel Standard volume requirements announced today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency would increase the mandated amount of ethanol in the nation’s fuel supply chain, despite a low demand for higher ethanol blends and an inadequate distribution and sales network, the American Motorcyclist Association reports.

The EPA’s proposed Renewable Volume Obligations call for 18.8 billion gallons of biofuel for 2017, up from 18.11 billion gallons this year. The obligations for 2015 were 16.93 gallons.

The AMA opposes any increase in the Renewable Volume Obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard.
