Correct tire pressure can be a key factor for truck and car owners who want to get the most from every gallon of gas. Every owner should check tire pressure monthly at the minimum. Wiygul Automotive Clinics can help with fuel consumption thanks to a new service previously available only for the aviation and racing industries, along with construction and other heavy equipment. We now offer nitrogen tire inflation for Clinton, MD, and other customers.

The regular air in passenger vehicle tires is already 78 percent nitrogen, just like the air we breathe. The remaining amounts are 21 percent oxygen, and one percent of other gases like argon, neon, and water vapor. With nitrogen tire inflation, though, the percentage has to be 93 to 95 percent with virtually no water vapor, and only traces of oxygen and other gases.

Tires inflated with nitrogen hold pressure longer than with oxygen since its molecules are larger and more difficult to pass through the interior of the tire. Comparison studies reveal that tires inflated with nitrogen lose only about two percent of its volume after twelve months as opposed to regular air which loses about three percent of its volume over the same amount of time.

Nitrogen also extends the life of the tire and internal sensors. Tires with the correct pressure grab the road and handle better when driving, reducing damage. The better air pressure, grip, and handling is what increases mileage. According to a study at Clemson University, some cars can increase their mileage by as much as 10 percent when driving on nitrogen-inflated tires.

Not only does nitrogen tire inflation for Clinton, MD automobiles hold pressure longer and increase mileage, it also reduces internal corrosion by eliminating oxidation. Regular air has more water vapor, which is what breaks down the inside of the tire over time. The same Clemson study noted that the reduced risk of tire failure was as much as 75 percent for some models. The reduced water vapor also eliminates corrosion of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors. Eliminating the need to replace them saves vehicle owners $30 to $350 per tire.

Nitrogen is also non-flammable, which makes it more stable than regular air. That makes it a safer choice for use in racing, construction, and aviation since the more stable gas handles sudden impacts and heavier vehicle weight better than regular air which makes tires more resistant to blowouts at high-temperatures and high-speed. The increased stability also increases the tread life for passenger cars and trucks.

For drivers that want a more stable tire and better gas mileage for their Clinton, MD automobiles, nitrogen tire inflation is now available at Wiygul Automotive. Call us today at 866-702-8050 to schedule an appointment to switch from regular air to nitrogen inflation for your vehicle’s tires at our Clinic nearest you.
