    Was that you in the car I saw yesterday with at least three half inflated tires??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    All putting nitrogen in your tires does is give you a very small ammount of gas mileage as your tire pressure is at the proper level for longer. Honestly ... it's a waste. Dont do it. Did it one, didnt see a difference. Still took me 36$ to fill up. Still had to put gas in 5 days later.

    Your best bet to improve gas mileage .....

    Change your air filter regularily. Check the filter every 4500 Kilometres.

    Also ... try not to push past 3.5 - 4 on your RPS guage. Gettin the engin moving faster burns gas quite badly

    You tried it once, on one car, and didn't check carefully.

    How long did your tires have the nitrogen? Could you compare in any way air loss or tire life?

    Most of these advantages are very subtle. A causual test, such as you describe, is not going to prove anything.

    Change your air filter regularly. Check the filter every 4500 Kilometres.

    A cab company in New York did a survey on oil additives and oil brands to find out which is the best way to go.
    Duralube, Slick 50 and others Quakerstate, Castrol etc.
    They found no additives or manufacturers stood out as being better than the other.
    Basic, even discount oil, that meets or exceeds manufactures specifications, without any additives, is as good as anything, if changed after 3000 miles.
    The test was done with new vehicles.
    For older engines, a product called Restore is another story.
    Designed to fill scratches and grooves in cylinder walls to increase compression, it is the real deal.
    There is a definite mileage and power improvement.
    Fourth gear acceleration can change enough to remove the down shift, to pass on the highway.

    Slick 50 wears cylinder walls.

    nitrogen gas is used in all race cars cause the presure will never change wich is very important cause if one tire gets too hot it would change the way that it would handle and its a safety issue

    Since they will change a tire on a Nascar racer to add 1/2 pound of pressure, this would seem to be the case.
