^^^ Absolutely.

This info. used to be right on the tire pressure sticker on the car as well as in the manual.

With the largest issue being inflation BELOW suggested levels, I'm assuming this has been left off now to reduce possible confusion over proper inflation.

(What's Hwy. use? When should I use more? Should it be less in town? Some even thought the recommended pressure was the Hwy. number & REDUCED it for normal driving!)

The thing with running too much pressure is that 1) it rides harsher and 2) the center tread wears faster.

Ok, not highway but extended driving without stops.......in other words, driving on country roads at 45 - 55 mph I got 42-43 mpg on pretty flat terrain.
