Correct tire pressure is a priority for truck and car owners who want to get the most out of their vehicle’s fuel consumption. Every owner needs to check tire pressure at least monthly. Wiygul Automotive Clinics can increase fuel efficiency with a new service previously available only for racing sports, the aviation industry, and construction and other heavy equipment for passenger vehicles in Reston, VA, nitrogen tire inflation.

The regular air in passenger vehicle tires is 78 percent nitrogen. The remaining percentage, just like the air we breathe, is 21 percent oxygen, and one percent other gases like neon, argon, and water vapor. For actual nitrogen inflation, however, the percent must be 93 to 95 percent with almost no water vapor present, and only traces of oxygen and other gases.

Tires hold pressure longer with nitrogen rather than oxygen since its molecules are larger and more difficult to pass through the rubber and other materials. Comparison studies show that tires filled with nitrogen lose roughly 2 percent of its volume after twelve months as opposed to regular air which loses about 3 percent of its volume over the same amount of time.

Each improvement also extends the life of the tire and other equipment. Tires with the correct pressure, grab the road better, and handle better when driving, reducing damage. 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.

Not only does nitrogen tire inflation for Reston, VA automobiles hold pressure longer, it also greatly reduces internal corrosion compared to regular air. It eliminates oxidation, which is what breaks down the inside of the tire over time. The same Clemson study noted that the reduced risk of tire failure thanks to nitrogen inflation, was as much as 75 percent for some models. The reduction of water vapor also eliminates corrosion to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors. Eliminating this replacement saves vehicle owners $30 to $350 per tire.

Nitrogen is non-flammable, which makes it more stable than regular air. That makes it a safer choice for use in racing, construction, and aviation since it handles sudden impacts and heavier vehicle weight than regular air in every model of tire. These features also them more resistant to blowouts at high-speed and high-temperatures. The increased stability and better-balanced tire also increase the tread life for passenger vehicles.

For drivers who require a more stable tire and want better fuel efficiency for their Reston, VA automobiles, nitrogen tire inflation is now a service provided at all Wiygul Automotive Clinics. Call us today at 866-702-8050 to schedule an appointment to switch from regular air to nitrogen inflation for your vehicle’s tires.
