Hi everyone,

My tires allow max pressure @ 44PSI.
My goal is to have the best MPG in summer.

Thank you!

My inline6(turbo) Accord gets the door jamb PSI around town. If driving long time on the highway I may bump it up a couple PSI.

Well, you'll have a spec listed on your tires (that'd be the 44 psi), and one on your doorjamb. That one is usually 30-35 psi, but can vary.
In theory, you can run them at any point in that range. But I would err on the side of the car's spec rather than the tires' spec. That is, if your car says 35 psi cold, and the tires say 44 psi, I'd go 35-maybe 37 psi. I wouldn't guess you'd get too much better mpg from going above that, and the car will probably ride harder to boot.
As with many things, it's hard to go wrong with what the car tells you...

V4's are pretty rare, especially in Accords.

We don't know your knowledge of tire psi.
Too much air can cause tire wear in the center of the tread.
Too little air can cause tire wear on the outside/inside edges(shoulders).

I would start with the recommended psi that your vehicle requires(usually listed in the door jamb) for your tire size & speed rating.
Then add small amounts of air to see it your fuel mileage changes. Most likely it won't just from more air alone.
Also, how much of a harsher ride(with more air) can you tolerate?
Do you prefer better/crisper handling & turn-in?
Or a slightly better ride over broken pavement?

These are just some factor to consider.

To the OP: your car either has a V6 or an inline 4; V4 is not an engine configuration used in automobiles.

(people can now refrain from pointing out the handful of exceptions)

Since this is primarily a learning site, I thought I would clarify.

Check the door card or the the owners manual.

The psi given provides the best combination of comfort, mpgs, and most importantly grip for things such as braking and hydroplaning resistance.

IMO, overinflating would theoretically provide the best mpgs because it reduces the size of the contact patch of the tire, but your risk of getting into an accident due to a lack of grip increases. You might be okay with that but what about your passengers?

Just to be clear, what is written on the sidewall of the tire is NOT a recommendation - it is a maximum. (Even says so!)

Since the tire doesn't know what vehicle it is going to go on, only the maximum is listed.

But you asked a question in the title that is different then the text in your post. So which answer to do want?

Do you want the best compromise between fuel economy, wear, ride, and handling? Or do you want to maximize fuel economy?

Depends on your area, tires, and driving style. The pressure rating on the door jamb is a cold pressure with the factory tires. Its also geared toward comfort not best wear, mileage, etc... Good safe rating if in doubt just be mindful its not a 100% one size fits all.

A good starting point I use for my customers is 35-36 in the front and 33-34 in the rear. If you see any abnormal wear then adjust accordingly.


yup

For maximum gas mileage set to the maximum 44 psi on the tire. Fine on a smooth highway but ride will suffer on bad roads.
