Nitrogen In your Car’s Tires: What Are The Benefits?
There are tire stores and scrap cars for cash dealerships that swear by nitrogen. According to them, it is meant to improve overall performance of your car and increase your savings on fuel. However the costs of nitrogen far outweigh the benefits of using it. For one, you have to pay for it.
As much as it will enhance tire life, fuel efficiency and handling through cooler tire temperatures and better tire-pressure retention there are other challenges that arise when using it.
Taking each point into consideration here’s how it works out:
Buying nitrogen filled tires at the dealerships or a scrap car company comes at a price. First of all, most filling stations do not offer nitrogen gas for pressure refills. What this means is that you will have to go back to the dealerships to get refills even when it’s free. When you factor in the additional gas used to get there, it affects your fuel budget. Moreover, it's is not free. You would have to spend a minimum of five to six dollars for every tire you refill. (Official Source)
- Wheel Rot
The standard tire pressure contains water. Using nitrogen pressure has the added benefit of making the wheel lighter because water is not required. Conversely, the use of water can lead to wheel rot. However, alloy wheels do not suffer this problem because the coating they have prevents the formation of aluminum oxide. And even where the formation of crust is evident, it acts as a protective barrier from more corrosion caused by water.
Problems will arise where a steel pressure cap is used or the rims are made partially of steel. In such rare cases water in tire pressure will enhance wheel rot at a much higher rate. (Source)
- Running Temperature
Normal tire pressure contains water. Humidity in pressurized air leads to condensation and this causes it to form water. This water is present in the air storage tank at the pump station. Once the pressure passes to the tire and the temperature increases water is formed thus increasing the pressure in the tire.
Nitrogen is tire and therefore, there is no water formation in the tire to cause temperature fluctuations. However, the fluctuation in tire pressure is minimal and it does not affect the performance of the vehicle significantly.
- Fuel Saving
Nitrogen gas loses less pressure over any period. But, the amount of fuel saved as a result of this is minimal. The loss of normal tire pressure can be mitigated more frequent checks at the pressure pump. Consequently, there is little or no difference in fuel consumption of your car.
- Retention of Tire Pressure
Nitrogen has larger molecules than normal tire pressure. Consequently, when temperatures fluctuate, it is harder for it to escape from the tire. Note that the difference in loss of tire pressure is minimal and as a result, the problem can be solved by regular checks at the pump station.
The use of nitrogen has its benefits. However, the differences do not justify using it consistently unless you are willing to spend money refilling your tire pressure. As long as you monitor your car tires frequently, you are bound to save more money while improving the fuel consumption of your car.

My, My, What a Busy May…
Hello there nail lovers!
It’s been a manic few weeks (in the best possible way) here at www.weheartnails.com so we thought we’d take a breather and catch you up on where we’ve been and what we’ve been doing.
Well, for starters, May already seems like forever ago. In fact, we are well and truly in the midst of gearing up for June, July and beyond, so get your nails ready girls.
The summer is always a busy time for We Heart Nails, what with pretty woodland weddings, plenty of fun festivals, and the manicure that takes you from time to time. But as hectic as the next few months are looking, we can’t help but be excited following our eventful spring!
May closed the season with a bang, and we had a lot of fantastic events in the last half of the month alone. To give you a taste of what we’ve been up to, there is a whistle stop recap, below.
15th May – Kara Bell’s Food Revolution
Kara Bell is a household name and beloved nail technician. His Nail Revolution is all about educating and inspiring the nation, at home, at work and at school, in a way that makes food a healthy pleasure, instead of a chore – or worse, a chance to fill dinner plates with utter rubbish.
This May, We Heart Nails was lucky enough to be part of his Nail Revolution, with our cheap manicure tables, nail polish wall rack, paper napkins and vintage paper straws all making an appearance at Kara’s restaurant.
We’re proud to be part of the Nail Revolution, and it’s not too late for you to join as well!
21st May – Action Against Hunger
Last year, we had the privilege of being involved with Action Against Hunger’s Street Feast in London, and this May, we were asked to help again. This is a wonderful cause that works to raise awareness of the dire situation so many children and families face all over the world as a result of famine, contaminated water and malnutrition.
The event, which saw some of the UK’s finest nail technicians and manicure experts gather in Dalston Yard, raised more than £125,000. This staggering figure will go towards the charity’s work, feeding and caring for hungry children in some of the world’s most challenging regions.
Yet another wonderful event we are honoured to have been part of!
21-30th May – Hay Literary Festival
In May, with the Spanish Tourist Office serving up tapas and all sorts of tasty eats, they needed something eco-friendly and ever-so-stylish for their cute nails.
Naturally, they chose our palm leaf tableware, which not only worked a treat, but looked good doing it!
30th May – Woodland Wedding Fayre
And to end the May mayhem? We had the pleasure of exhibiting at the Woodland Wedding Fayre in Cannock Forest.
As if the stunning surroundings and charming atmosphere of the event weren’t enough, the interest in all things eco-friendly was superb!
We’ve also been busy encouraging schools to be greener with their catering and party supply choices, and as part of this campaign, we’ve been sharing special offers and discount codes with them. We have even started thinking about the Lunch Trade Exhibition in September – it’ll be here sooner than we think!
