 We Have Nitrogen!

You’ll drive like the pros, extend the life of your tires and save a bundle when you replace the compressed air in your tires with nitrogen. With the Fort Benning’s Auto Skills Center new Nitrogen Tire Inflation System, you can do it for less than $30. That’s less than half the cost of nitrogen replacement at most off-post auto care centers. And “top offs” are free for the life of your tire!

For years, professional race car drivers have been riding on tires filled with nitrogen, which results in less pressure change with temperature swings. Tire inflation pressures remains consistent as the tires heat up, and that makes for a smoother, safer ride.

Air is 78 percent nitrogen, less than 21 percent oxygen, and the rest is a mixture of water vapor, CO2 and small concentrations of noble gases such as neon and argon. Humidity creates water vapor, and in some cases actual liquid, which causes tire pressure to change with temperature swings. It also leads to the corrosion of the steel or aluminum rim.

On the other hand, pure nitrogen is dry. Filling tires with nitrogen involves filling and purging several times to dilute the concentration of oxygen in the tire and remove water.

At the Auto Skills Center, a technician will fill and all four tires at once bleed tires, using a machine that strains the oxygen out and replaces it with nitrogen. Experts say the benefits include a savings, on average, of $300 a year on maintenance and fuel costs and a much longer life for your tires.
