I think tires should also be rated to include Total Air Capacity in addition to Pounds per Square Inch.

I tend to think that the more air in the tire at high temperatures and on a smaller hub yields higher MPGs when everything else is equivalent. I don't [yet] have any empirical evidence to base it on (other than my own experiments and observations).
