Proper tire inflation is a must for owners who want to get the most efficient fuel consumption possible out of their car or truck. Each owner needs to check their vehicle’s tire pressure at least monthly. To further improve fuel efficiency, Wiygul Automotive Clinics now provide a service previously available only for the aviation industry, construction and other heavy equipment, and racing automobiles to private car and truck owners in Burke, VA, nitrogen tire inflation.

The regular air in tires is mostly nitrogen, about 78 percent. The rest of it, like what we breathe, is 21 percent oxygen, and one percent made up of water vapor and traces of other gases like neon and argon. For actual nitrogen inflation, however, the percent must be about 93 to 95 percent with almost no water vapor present, and only traces of oxygen and other gases.

Since nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules, tires hold pressure with nitrogen longer than with the same amount of regular air. Previous comparison studies show that tires filled with regular air lose about 3 percent of their volume over twelve months as opposed to only 2 percent for nitrogen-inflated tires.

Nitrogen tire inflation for Burke, VA vehicles holds correct pressure longer and greatly reduces internal corrosion. Both of which extend the life of the tire and other equipment. Tires with the correct pressure grip the road better and handle better when driving, reducing damage to them. The better air pressure, grip, and handling is what increases fuel efficiency. According to a study at Clemson University, some cars can increase their efficiency by as much as 10 percent.

Reducing corrosion means that oxidation is almost eliminated, which is what slowly breaks down the rubber making up the interior of the tire. The same study noted that the reduced risk of tire failure was as much as 75 percent. The reduced level of water vapor also prevents corrosion to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System or TPMS sensors. Eliminating this risk means that the vehicle owners do not have to pay out anywhere from $30 to $350 per tire for replacements.

With almost no oxygen present, nitrogen is non-flammable and more stable than regular air. That makes it safer for use in aviation, construction, and racing since it handles heavier vehicle weight and sudden impacts better than regular air. These features also make tires inflated with nitrogen more resistant to blowouts at high-speed, high-temperatures, or both. Nitrogen’s increased stability also increases the life of the tread by providing a better-balanced tire for passenger cars and trucks.

For drivers desiring a more stable tire and increased fuel efficiency in their Burke, VA vehicles, nitrogen tire inflation is now an available option at Wiygul Automotive Clinics. To schedule an appointment to switch from regular air to nitrogen in your tires, call our office at 866-702-8050 today.
