Fill Your Tires With Nitrogen Near Boston MA


Schedule An Appointment For A Nitrogen Tire Fill At Muzi Chevy

Here at Muzi Chevrolet, we are commonly asked whether it is better to fill your tires with air or with nitrogen. Over the years we have seen a lot vehicles with compressed air and nitrogen and we can honestly report that we have found nitrogen does have some important tangible advantages.

The most important benefit of nitrogen filled tires is that they maintain a more consistent pressure which helps to improve both fuel economy and road grip.  Let's take a closer look at the science behind nitrogen and why it is a great alternative to compressed air. 


The Science Behind Nitrogen

The compressed air that is commonly used to fill your tires is comprised of about 78% nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and the other 1% is comprised of everything else including, among other things, argon, water vapor and carbon dioxide. Nitrogen molecules are much larger than oxygen molecules so it is much more difficult for the nitrogen to to permeate through the body of your tires. 

As a result of these molecular differences, filling your tires with nitrogen provides a more consistent ride and can help improve fuel economy by up to 10% More MPG's.

Since air is so readily available and has been simple to acquire and harness, it has remained the default inflation medium of choice for tires and other inflatable products for many years.

But, just because something has been the default for many years does not mean that there are no opportunities for innovation and improvement. Just think if Tesla had not improved upon Edison's innovations or the Wright brothers never came along!

  
In addition to the fuel economy benefits, filling your tires with nitrogen can help to reduce corrosion and improve the longevity of your tires saving you money in the long run. The reason for this is because Oxygen is a component of water or H20. Oxygen is actually the cause of oxidation or rust, rot and corrosion. Without the presence of oxygen there is no opportunity for condensation and therefore no opportunity for rust, rot or corrosion.

NASCAR and Indy Car drivers fill their tires exclusively with nitrogen for another reason: predictability of tire pressure. The consistency of ride provided by nitrogen is the reason that race car drivers fill their tires with nitrogen and not compressed air.

As the water vapor heats and tires expand road grip and control is lost and that can be extremely detrimental at higher speeds. So filling your tires with Nitrogen can provide better road grip. That is why the king of racing, Richard Petty has stated the nitrogen is: "the most cost effective peace of mind money can buy." 




In addition, tires that are underinflated are more likely to experience blowouts. So Nitrogen in tires can help to improve the safety of your ride.

Does The Purity Of Nitrogen Matter?


The purity of the nitrogen in the tire is absolutely critical to its efficacy. The purity of nitrogen available can range from 95% to 99.9% . Here at Muzi Chevy we only use NitroFill generators which produce nitrogen in excess of 99.9% purity and are programmed to provide a guaranteed minimum of 95% purity in the serviced tire, which is the minimum allowable purity that must be maintained in the tire to enjoy the benefits of nitrogen inflation.

So, while you may not be taking your car to the track the fuel economy, safety, and anti-corrosive benefits of nitrogen in tires are more than enough reason to give nitrogen a try in your car.
