hi, I did google for a car foot pump, michelin double barrel came tops in Autoexpress reviews, but when I read a few customer reviews on Amazon they said the Michelin foot pump was no good, does anyone own one of these foot pumps or could you recommend a good foot pump with gauge

Why struggle with a foot pump.

Get one like mine.

Digital tyre pump, plugs in to the cigarette lighter. Set your own tyre pressure and it stops when it gets to it.

"plugs in to the cigarette lighter. Set your own tyre pressure and it stops when it gets to it".

And 5 minutes later you have 4 fully inflated tyres and 1 fully flat battery

Not if you have the engine running surely?

I have a Halfords double barreled foot pump. Always found it very quick and reliable. Had it about ten years now.

|It has a gauge which I have compared with normal hand held gauges and it appears to be accurate

Thanks for all the help, I think I'll have a look at the double barrel pumps

I have used an electric pump, powered from the cigar lighter, for years. I NEVER had any problem with it depleting the battery.

Clapton is God, no you don't.

Just keep the engine running at idle.

I would have thought that was obvious.

And I would have thought that it was obvious that I was joking.
