Doesn’t sound all that heathy to me,
There is a benefit to filling tires with nitrogen, but is has nothing to do with lasting longer or running low. It eliminates the moisture in ambient air from changing tire pressure as the air heats up. It's a benefit for race cars, but not really necessary for street cars.
But even if you use nitrogen it still needs to be changed at 3,000 miles, right?
And don't forget to rotate your green valve caps also.
I know you think you're joking, but a guy I knew bought green valve stem caps for his car because he wanted to look cool. One day he was at the gas station filling his tires with plain air. Some busybody called the feds, and the next thing he knew he was spread-eagled on the ground, the Bureau of Tire Inflation had everything taped off, lights, dogs an mayhem everywhere. The gas station reopened after a few weeks, but the only working air compressor for a radius of a hundred miles is now history.
Be careful about what you joke about.
I first ran into nitrogen in tires in A&P training back in 70. But guess what was used in the B52 tires in Thailand and Guam bombing Vetnam. Just plain old very moist tropical air.
Man, we could use some of THAT around here about now!
Yeah, and the worst part aside from my desil powered sturmwagen being the most hated vehicle in the world in the first place was that I was in jail for 72 hrs without a magistrate hearing.
The good thing about that is at least we know you're not a vampire or a demon from hell.
Turns out the nitrogen was Canadian, ergo, smuggled.
Tastes good with the extra "H" molecule, it's that extra "O" that makes it taste funny.
Well, maybe not a vampire or demon...but did you miss the part where BB said he is from Canada???
I got some pink 10,000yr old Himalayan salt with expriation date on packaging.
Nope, not a vampire or demon.
I'm from Heck, actually.
I don't know if you are serious or not, maybe just pulling old TD's chain a little. Just made a California Air Resources Board search and there are no laws against putting plain old compressed air in tires that are filled with Nitrogen in this state. Every station in our area has an air pumping station you can use for fifty cents, of course that airs up maybe the front tires, then another fifty cents will do the back ones. By now between our rednecks and License deprived drivers there wouldn't be a functioning gas station in Kern County if we had those kind of regulations here.
Gonna file that right here under:
Isn't H3O what they used to call "heavy water."? When I was a kid they made movies about using "heavy water" to make Atom Bombs! Also beware passing wind near naked flames............we'd hate to lose a TDPRI'er.
Yeah, but you no longer need to rotate your tires.
Just the air... er nitrogen.
Are you being serious about this, TD? If so.... dang. In Connecticut it's the law that if a filling station has an air pump, use of it must be provided free of charge. You still gotta go ask the guy to flip the switch to arm it, and then you need to walk back over and ask him where the friggin switch is (hidden on the underside of the unit), and then you still need to hurry up, lest you want to repeat the whole process for the last half of the last tire.
But it's free.
I imagine once the law was passed, most places decided it would be more expensive to remove the darn thing.
No, heavy water is D2O, it's a neutron moderator. Drinking H3O makes you irresistible to squid, so if you drink it best to stay out of salt water.
It's a common mistake.
