How to read the figures:
Left-top: % Share of fuel input (TJ) by type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels) into 1A1a public electricity and heat production.
Left-bottom: Implied emission factor for each fuel above (tCO2 / TJ), taken from EEA (2009)
Right-top: Average efficiency of transformation in EU-27.
Numerator = 101109 Output from district heating plants + 101121 Output from public thermal power stations
Denominator = 101009 Input to district heating plants + 101021 Input to public thermal power stations
Right-bottom: % Share of CO2 emissions by fuel type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels into 1A1a public electricity and heat production)

This will reduce wear and tear on them and increase their longevity, thereby saving money. It also saves precious raw material: it takes 27 litres of crude oil to produce a new tire. Under-inflated tyres also increase fuel consumption by up to 10%. Check your tyres at least once a month. It takes but a few minutes.
