Proper tire pressure is a must for car and truck owners who want to get the most out of their vehicle’s fuel consumption. Each owner needs to check their vehicle’s tire pressure monthly, at least. Wiygul Automotive Clinics can help improve fuel efficiency with a new service previously available only for racing sports, the aviation industry, and construction and other heavy equipment for private car and truck owners in Herndon, VA, nitrogen tire inflation.

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

Nitrogen molecules are bigger than oxygen, so tires hold pressure with nitrogen far longer than with the same amount of regular air. 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.

Because of that, nitrogen tire inflation for Herndon, VA vehicles holds correct pressure longer and greatly reduces internal corrosion compared to regular air. Each improvement helps 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 with nitrogen-inflated tires.

Reducing corrosion means eliminating oxidation, which is what slowly breaks down the interior 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 level also prevents corrosion to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System or TPMS sensors. Eliminating this replacement means that the vehicle owners do not have to pay a cost of $30 to $350 per tire, depending on the model.

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

For drivers who want a more stable tire and increased fuel efficiency for their Herndon, VA vehicles, nitrogen tire inflation is now available at Wiygul Automotive Clinics. Call our office at 866-702-8050 today to schedule an appointment to switch from regular air to nitrogen for your vehicle’s tires.
