[Healeys] Tyre Pressures

Just returned from the Italian/French mountain passes. Loads of fun, 
even with a fully laden Kia Rio I was repatriating, also thanks to the 
climate control on board. If you are returning during the weekend I 
strongly advise you to avoid the Toll roads and Motorways, they may be 
very crowded and slow, are expensive, very, very boring and the services 
and meals are lousy.
Tap in "avoid motor ways and/or toll roads" on your (up to date!!!!) GPS 
or smart phone and enjoy the really excellent secondary and smaller 
roads. It will take a bit longer but is so more pleasant with nice 
places to see, many excellent small restaurants, hotels on the way, 
plenty of arm muscle exercise and the petrol is way cheaper. Just be 
aware that petrol is mainly sold along the road near the larger towns 
and at the hyper markets e.g. Intermarché, very well indicated 
beforehand often near industrial estates. Do carry a 10 litre jerrycan 
with petrol, just in case.
Tyre pressure also depends on temperature, I had over 40ºC with tarmac 
melting. I would settle for around 2bar for this size of tyre in general.
