Save Gas – Get your Tires inflated with Nitrogen

Somewhen in 2008, gas prices are soaring, so what do you do?

Do you drive a car? Are you worried with gas mileage?

Well, you should, people are trying to get more and more fuel efficient cars, taking less useless road trips, and they do anything they can just to reduce the money they spend on gas.

So, what do you know? One of the real threats for increasing fuel consumption is “under-inflated” tyres (or tires, whatever you wish).

Did you know these can reduce your gas mileage to up to 10%?

Yes, it’s insane, but real…

Well, a Tennesse based company called GoNitroTyre is taking takes tyre efficiency a little further, by providing a new product to fill your tyres, based on nitrogen instead of oxygen.

Here’s what GoNitroTyre’s founder Ken Lawton has to say about this:

GoNitroTyre Product Overview and Review:

We (GoNitroTyre) offer 2 different products:

  • The TyreXtender aerosol top-off product – Used for refilling your tyres with nitrogen when they tend to lose pressure.
  • The UltraFill 99+ system – Which allows you to replace oxygen in your tyres with up to 95% of nitrogen.

Where can I find it?

You can find the UltraFill 99+ system through GoNitroTyre’s site (unavailable at the time we’re publishing this due to an overwhelming demand).

The TyreXtender is available at a lot of automotive stores. (Did you know that this technology is currently being used by both the airline industry and NASCAR for their tyres?

Are there any Ecological benefits for using Nitrogen-Filled Tyres

People have been debating about whether these nitrogen powered tyres will improve or not gas mileage, however, Ken Lawton points out several other benefits of using nitrogen filled tyres:

  • Almost 80% of our atmosphere is made up of Nitrogen, which makes it a naturally occurring element that we’re exposed to every single day.
  • Nitrogen is a dry gas, and it’s more stable than oxygen and will cause a lot less leaks and rust.
  • Nitrogen will last longer inside your tyres (up to 6 months without a top-off), allowing you more leeway with tyre pressure.
  • You can expect up to 30% better tyre wear, this if those are properly inflated with nitrogen, which means less tyres to dispose of.
  • Nitrogen may also be used to fill in non-car tyres, so you can improve the life of your bicycle, truck, trailer and motorcycle tyres.

Start using GoNitroTyre now!

Lawton says “I had been aware that NASCAR was using nitrogen in its car tyres”

“After a little investigation I’ve learned that fleet groups were also taking this advantage, so I wondered why consumers were not aware of it.”

“GoNitroTyre started to help with the transition from these specialized groups to consumers.”

Special Disposal Procedures

Ken Lawton tells us that recycling tyres is exactly the same process whether they’ve been filled with nitrogen or oxygen. Ken also wishes to dispel the theory that nitrogen filled tyres are more prone to explode.

“The parallels to nitrous oxide are misleading,” Lawton says; “Nitrogen does not support combustion, making it even safer than oxygen when it comes to blown tyres.”

Ecological Evolution of Company

According to Lawton: “With a raising concern on gas prices, the advocacy has been very gratifying; “We’ve identified who the biggest beneficiaries of this technology are, and are overly excited for more consumers to learn about the benefits of nitrogen-filled tyres.”

He then adds that one of the major goals was the creation of the top-off product so DIY’ers could easily maintain their own tyres.

Now, his new goal is to make nitrogen available everywhere and the build out will start this year, before oil prices get over $200…or maybe even 400 bucks…

The Best thing on running GoNitroTyre

“I like that we are a big part of helping consumers save money,” Lawton says; “We are giving back through savings on driving and car care while helping the environment at the same time. The environmental impact of driving is very important to us.”

So what’s up? What are you waiting for to put some Nitrogen in your tyres?
