Full Service Gas Stations in the Philippines


40 psi is the New 33 psi

Today I decided to ride my motorcycle into town to pick up some fresh beans for lunch per my wife’s request. Because I haven’t used the bike in over a week, I stopped in at a “service” station to check the air pressure in the tires.  After the attendant gauged them, he topped them both off and says “There…40 psi.”  I explained to him that the MAX tire pressure rating was 33 psi and he looks at me as if he agreed, smiled and says “yes, it’s okay…40 psi.” Rather than educate him, it was easier to drive off, stop and bleed off the excess.

It’s just another day in  paradise!
