    Good day guys. Bag-o ra ko dri nga forum. Asa man ta maka-painflate ug NITROGEN para sa ligid dri sa Cebu and how much? Mas maka-improve man gud kuno sa riding comfort ang Nitrogen. Salamat daan.

    wa ko kadungog kung asa makapataod ana. naa may nitrogen tanks baligya ang SIG sa mabolo, pwede siguro nimo tauran ug adaptor para makapahangin ka sa imong ligid. di ba kuyaw kung nitrogen?

    Dili man siguro kuyaw kay mao man na ang gigamit sa F1 Race cars. I know it is available in Manila at 100 pesos per tire and they really said that it will improve the ride.

    Naa man gani to gilista nga mga advantages of using it sa ligid. Ill try to look it up and post it here.

    Yhe advantages of using Nitrogen in inflating your tires:
    (Posted by Beebs at the Fortuner Forum)

    Why use Nitrogen
    Nitrogen is an inert gas that has a larger molecular structure than Oxygen.
    Safety
    Proper tire pressure maximizes a vehicles braking and steering capability
    Elimination of oxygen results in fewer internal tire failures
    Reduced chemical aging reduces the risk of tire failure
    Tire Performance
    Proper tire pressure optimizes a vehicles handling
    Proper tire pressure improves ride quality
    Economy
    Proper tire pressure minimizes rolling resistance, leading to better fuel mileage
    Proper inflation pressure optimizes tire life
    Features & Benefits
    Does not diffuse as easily: nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen, which means that it has a slower rate of pressure loss.
    Nitrogen permeates the tire at a rate of 30-40% slower than oxygen
    Inert gas: nitrogen disperses heat more quickly which results in cooler running tires
    Improved tread life
    Reduced incidences of tire damage caused by excessive heat
    Non-flammable; reduced chance of flash point explosion
    Potential for better fuel mileage; if heat is restrained from building up the rolling resistance is reduced which can improve the vehicles fuel economy
    Reduced pressure build up: maintaining pressure reduces the deflection, which again prevents heat build-up and reduces the chance of separation
    Over-pressurization is as problematic as under-pressurization
    Increased tire pressure above the recommended inflation point can reduce the contact patch and thus reduce the maximum possible grip levels.
    Reduced moisture content introduced to the tire
    Nitrogen is dry because of it's inert qualities. Many of the causes of failure in a tire can be attributed to moist air being introduced internally to the tire.
    Moisture causes rusting, especially of the stem valve, increasing leakage. Additionally heating in tires is often caused by vaporization of the moisture
    Who Uses Nitrogen Today?
    Aircraft tires
    Used for consistent pressure and minimized oxidation of rubber compounds
    NASCAR & Fomular 1
    For improved, consistent handling and reduced operating temperatures
    Heavy contruction equipment
    For consistent tire pressure and to prevent auto-ignition
    US Goverment / military equipment
    NASA - space shuttle

    I'd save money and pump in regular air; you still get 78% nitrogen!

    Thanks. I already had Nitro on my tires since Nov 2 at CFG Andres Abellana, Guadalupe. The ride improves on long drives but has a very little effect on short ones.

    BTW, I already started another thread on this chapter RE: Nitrogen & PDR (Paintless Dent Repair)

    Thanks.

    Bai, im using nitro filled tires unya nindot gyud bai, gawas na ga an kaayo padaganon ang sakyanan dugay sad kaayo mahiyos ang ligid. Sa roadstar mabolo bai atbang sa shell station kanang shell na tapad sa carmelites. 50 pesos per tire, bai unya kung top up lang imo 50 pesos ra ang 4 tires. Since nag ilis kog new tires wala gyud ko nag gamit ug ordinaryo na hangin. Nitro ra gyud, kay ingon sila na ma pro long sad daw sa ligid. kana e prove pa na.

Nitrogen to inflate tire in Cebu: Where?
