Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I use a 20 year old floor pump gauge, so we're not talking NASA accuracy here.
My bad! Even 5PSI per day is too much, though.

Didn't want to argue, just wanted to point out that a tire should not lose 5-10PSI per day.

Despite answers to the contrary, that's normal for me whether tubeless, tubed, or tubular.

All my tubeless setups across half a dozen bikes typically lose 5-10 psi per day. But its not linear as they usually take several months to go completely flat. I always top up the pressure before every ride.
