Compressed air will leak out of a tyre rapidly. Alternatively, nitrogen will leak three or four times more slowly than compressed air. Because of this stability in air pressure, nitrogen can offer some pretty useful advantages:
Better fuel economy
Longer tyre life
The benefits of nitrogen tyre inflation have been substantiated through a variety of studies. The Get Nitrogen Institute is an organisation that has carried out such research. Please click here to view a summary of these results.
