Can car owners save cash by filling their tires with nitrogen?

October 1st, 2012 by

Yes, indeed!

After we let you in on this little secret, you’ll want to forget about plain ‘ole air! That’s because nitrogen-filled tires can save drivers somewhere in the neighborhood of $125-$135 per year! (Not too shabby, right?)

But that’s not all! Nitrogen 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 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!

Ready to give nitrogen a try? We can help you make the switch. Call us at 866-546-9136 or schedule a service appointment online.
