Can Filling Your RV’s Tires With Nitrogen Save You Money On Fuel?

by Dorothy Yamich

Travelers can save money on gasoline by replacing the air in their vehicle’s and RV’s tires with nitrogen gas. They can also save money on gas in their every day driving as well. Research has shown that drivers can improve their gas mileage by over three percent when they use nitrogen in their 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 serious amount 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 instead of air in you vehicle’s tires, it will help to better maintain proper tire air pressure. This optimizes tire road contact which reduces tire/road resistance. Because of this, the fuel economy is increased and less exhaust emissions enter into the atmosphere. You might say that by going green you are also saving green, greenbacks, that is.

What can you do to help America’s economy reduce its dependence on foreign oil?

Current research shows that if every driver in the United States replaced the air in each of their vehicle’s tires with nitrogen gas, they would improve their gas mileage by over three percent. This translates into a whopping saving of almost four trillion gallons of gasoline per year!

For more research and information on the growing use of nitrogen gas in motor vehicles’ tires including those of commercial carriers, visit Get Nitrogen at their website, In addition to the info and 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.

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

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

Measure tire pressure accurately with a tire gauge as a visual tire inspection is not reliable.

It’s best to measure tire air pressure when they’re cold. You should wait approximately three hours for the air inside your tires to cool down before measuring the tire pressure.

Lastly, and probably most important, be sure you check the air pressure in your vehicle’s tires at least once a month.
