What do the heavy construction, mining, and commercial trucking industries have in common with NASCAR, NASA, and Air Force One? They all use nitrogen gas to fill up their tires. Nitrogen is a harmless gas that is a clean and safe alternative to compressed air. In this video, talk show host and car enthusiast Jay Leno discusses the benefits of using pure nitrogen in your tires rather than plain air.
The biggest benefit of filling your tires with nitrogen is that it leads to better pressure retention, which improves tire handling, control, and gripping ability. This can also improve your vehicle’s fuel economy between four and ten percent.
