Do you have nitrogen in your tires? You should!

October 17th, 2011 by

Sure, you can put plain old air in your tires, and it will do the job. But if you’d like to save some cold, hard cash – perhaps to the tune of $125 a year! — then nitrogen is for you.

Nitrogen is a non-flammable dry gas, and by using it in your tires, you can improve your entire driving experience. Research shows that it will help you:

  • improve fuel economy
  • extend the life of your tires
  • increase the safety and reliability of your vehicle

Want to see something a little more concrete? Head on over to and crunch the numbers yourself. The site’s Savings Calculator will ask you to input some basic figures (the number of miles you drive per year, the amount of money it costs to replace a tire, the average price you pay for a gallon of gas and your car’s average miles per gallon). Once you do that, the calculator will tell you just how much you can save in the span of a year.

While we’re on the subject, we should mention that this is a great time to make the switch to nitrogen. With cooler temps on the horizon, tires can lose pressure even more quickly than normal. Nitrogen can slow that process quite a bit!
