    I have it on good authority that 90psi equals=6.205281552 (ish) :thumb:

    If you google convert PSI to BAR it gives the equivalents..:Cool:

    1BAR is 14.5037738007...(ish)

    Once had some instrument tech's at British Steel (as was) who were setting up a new instrument. After a couple of hours I asked what was up as they were looking puzzled. After chatting for a bit I discovered they had assumed an Atmosphere was the same as a bar he he bar is 14.5 psi atmosphere is 14.7.........made all the difference. great joy as some of em were arrogant barstewards!! Little things can sometimes be pleasing eh? :thumb:

    The sticker in my Fiat cab says 5.5bar...
    This I know maybe relates to when it's is used as a commercial vehicle.

    On the recent hab check the guy pointed out that the tyres were max 69psi (less than 5 bar).. I wonder how many people could easily over inflate theirs and why dont motorhome manufacturers put on new stickers with correct pressures for the modified vehicle.. :Doh:

    It seems that everything around you is dominated by drink Mo. Bar, Bah, Baa. There's more to life than drink you know.

    Tonka, what weight is your van plated to ?
    The only tyres I know of or can find info on that are that low are 6 ply rated ( apart from one set type that is 8 ply )
    I will not have anything less than 10 ply but to be fair my van is plated at 4.1t
