I think that as long as you know what a certain pressure reading on your guage equates to on the trail then the actual accurate pressure doesn't really matter. It's just a relative thing so if 20psi on your guage feels right on the trail, it doesn't really matter whether it's actually 20psi or not. What I have found though is that the lower you go the more impact a small change has in terms of it being a percentage of the overall pressure. This is particularly apparent on my fat bike (which I run at 7psi front, 8psi rear). One psi is a big change at those low pressures whereas one psi change at 40psi is barely noticeable.
This entirely. I can't believe I've read someone say you need to see tenths of PSI to get the right pressure sorry, not being rude but as someone pointed out, temperature alone can change your pressure by a whole psi.
I can just about feel the difference of 1 psi if you are talking around the 20-26 psi mark but I don't think I'll ever feel the difference of 0.4 psi
