  • Electrical type pump reading

    I have an electrical cigarette lighter tyre pump, but the reading is x100kpa, and that gauge goes up to 4. Anyone have a clue how that translates to psi?

    100 kpa is 1 bar. 1 bar equals 14.5038 psi. On your gauge a reading of 2 (bar) is 30 psi and 2.2 (bar) is 32 psi. Near enough. The gauge will not accurate enough that you need to be more precise than this.

      Thanks, that makes sense now. I've pumped my other halves tyres to 2.8. I'm sure she'll be fine.

        2.8 bar is 40 psi. Isnt that a bit high for a car tyre?

          It is, but it's a crappy old Ford Puma with tyres that deflate quicker than I can keep up with, so they'll soon be down to 30psi again or lower.
