Nitrogen in Tyres

A fuel-efficient, eco-friendly alternative to compressed air.

Here’s how using Nitrogen in your tyres can help you keep your car running newer, longer.

Tyre Pressure

Because of its larger molecular size, nitrogen migrates through a tyre three to four times slower than oxygen. A tyre filled with compressed air will lose 1 in less than a month; with nitrogen this could take three months or longer.

Fuel Economy

Proper tyre pressure lessens rolling resistance and helps maintain optimum fuel economy between services.

Tyre Life

Setting into your tyre. It will also optimize your vehicle’s handling and ride characteristics.


For vehicles equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system (), nitrogen provides for more consistent tyre pressure, reducing the likelihood of alerts triggered solely by fluctuations in outside temperature.…and it’s better for the environment!


The optimal fuel economy you can maintain more easily with nitrogen will produce less air pollution and less greenhouse gas emissions.

Remember, just because your tyres are filled with Nitrogen doesn’t mean you can’t top them off with regular air. It’s best to use Nitrogen in your tyres whenever possible, but if you run into a situation where you can’t get it, go ahead and top off with air. Then when you get a chance, head back to the store that inflated your tyres with nitrogen for a refill. It is recommended that you continue to check your tyre pressure periodically.
