Filled nitrogen for the first time in Fiesta. Here it costs Rs.25 per tyre for cars and Rs.20 per tyre for bikes. Membership for Rs.125 includes three top-ups.

My last refill lasted for almost one and a half month. Topped up again and this time got membership as well.

Re: Nitrogen being better than Air - a Joke?

I think so, I have never felt any difference between using nitrogen and air. However ever as per experiments done by racing creeds, it been proved that using pure nitrogen instead of air help in predicting exact pressure of air in tyres during a race.

Since we are normal civilians, there is no need for us filling tyres with pure nitrogen and also I seriously doubt we could find a station which fills pure nitrogen during long drives.

Nitrogen is better if you do alot of highway runs and dont want to constantly top up air in the tyres since leakage chances are lesser with Nitrogen as it doesnt get affected by heat , the way regular air does

For city runs, regular air is best imho

Re: Nitrogen being better than Air - a Joke?

I personally always fill Nitrogen in my car tyres. It doesn't leak fast like normal air and thats the main and I think only advantage over filling normal air. You can refill air after a month easily and there would be minimal drop in air pressure (This is true only if you fill Nitrogen everytime and not mix with normal air as oxygen would be present in normal air which causes leaking). If you just fill air, refilling in 1 month is risky as pressure would drop drastically. It's not a joke and I prefer Nitrogen.

Nitrogen is worse than Air. Nitrogen is just a hoax to make money. Lots of experiments have been done on this. Even MythBusters on Discovery channel have experimented on this. Air is better than Nitrogen any time. Humans have a tendency to believe in propaganda. North Koreans think they are the best, British think they are the best, Jews think they are the best, every one thinks they are the best! who can argue? If you think Nitrogen is better put Nitrogen.
If there is a god, he must be thinking, "Dude, i made a nice combo of gases which wont expand / contract rapidly with temperature change, still these humans are using Nitrogen in tyres, what the hell".
When ever my brother in-law uses my car, he some how manages to find a nitrogen filling station on the way and refills all tyres with nitrogen. I have never argued with him on this, and i don't think i should.
