    You can put it to whatever pressure you want, there is no "correct" pressure. But for simplicity sake, just put it to whatever it says in your door jamb.

    Yes, your mileage is affected; and I would not go as far as putting whatever pressure you want; tires do have a maximum pressure. However, a pressure in the low 30's works just fine. Try riding your V with say 32psi in each tire and see how you like the ride, and so on. Your mileage will be higher in this pressure range. I keep my tires inflated to 34psi and get decent milegae mileage (as much as 31 on highways and 23-25 around town), and I like how it rides as well. Good luck!
