Vacation Driving - Can Nitrogen In Vehicle Tires Save You Money?

Sep 4, 2008
Not only can travelers save money on gasoline by replacing the air in their vehicle's and RV's tires with nitrogen gas, they can save money on their every day driving as well. Research shows that drivers can improve their gas mileage by over three percent when they use nitrogen in their motor vehicle's tires.

This is not a new technology as it has been used for many years by commercial airlines as well as in NASCAR cars.The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandates that nitrogen gas be used in all commercial aircraft tires to eliminate the possibility of water vapor freezing at high altitudes which happens with air filled tires.The NASCAR teams use nitrogen in the tires of their racing cars because the tire pressure fluctuates less than it does with air.

How can using nitrogen gas in your vehicle's tires save you a lot of money?

First of all, you do not have to buy new tires to make the change, your present tires will be fine. When using nitrogen gas in the tires you can improve your vehicle's fuel efficiency and save a lot of money in the process. Nitrogen in your tires will also improve your vehicle's handling and extend the life of your tires so you will have to replace them less often. There is no question that in this era of record high gas prices you will reap substantial savings on all of your driving for years to come.

How can using nitrogen gas in your vehicle's tires also benefit our environment?

By using nitrogen gas in your vehicle's tires instead of air, it will help to better maintain proper tire air pressure. This optimizes tire road contact, reducing tire/road resistance as well. As a result, fuel economy is increased and less exhaust emissions will enter the atmosphere. You could say that by going green you're also saving green, greenbacks, that is.

How can you do your part to help America's economy reduce its dependence on foreign oil?

Current national research shows that if every driver in the U.S. replaced the air in each of their vehicle's tires with nitrogen gas, they would improve their gas mileage by over three percent. These figures translate into an enormous saving of almost four trillion gallons of gasoline per year!

For more information and research data on the growing use of nitrogen gas in motor vehicles' tires including those of commercial carriers, visit Get Nitrogen at their website, GetNitrogen.org. In addition to the research, you will find a growing list of registered dealers located in the United States and Canada that can replace the air in your tires with nitrogen.

Here are some important points on how you can save gas and lessen green house gas emissions at the same time by not driving on under inflated tires, whether you are using air or nitrogen gas in them.

Firstly, check your vehicle owner's manual for the optimum tire pressure.

A visual tire inspection is not reliable, so always use a tire gauge to accurately measure tire pressure.

Measure tire pressure only when they are cold. It's best to wait approximately three hours for the air inside your tires to cool down before measuring the tire air pressure.

Lastly, and probably the most important point, always check the air pressure in your vehicle's tires at least once a month.
