The garage did my blinker fluid a couple weeks ago. Wish I'd known I
could get it online, woulda saved me a couple hundred bucks. They had
to blow the electrons out of the lines, and top off the electrical
level, too. Took em most of all day to get it done.

You can\'t shout down a troll.
Hey, that's not that funny. We actually have garages that fill you
tires with nitrogen for something like $6 each with free top-offs. If
you have a flat and fit it somewhere else, you bring it in and the will
suck out the air and put the nitrogen in. So they are, in effect,
changing the air. Go figure.
Considering that normal air is 70% nitrogen to begin with... Is there any
actual reason you'd want to fill
your tires with nitrogen? Or was that the joke and I'm just too stupid to get
-- Possibly stupid Bob
AIUI oxygen attacks the rubber. At higher pressure (2.5ATM) some
say the degradation is significant. Nitrogen is also dried so will
not add water to the tire. Do I believe the difference is
significant? I'm not convinced. Do I bother? Nope.
It's the same statistical lie used by lubricating oil companies. (compare
against car that been using the same oil for 150K miles)
The fuel economy improvement when using nitrogen in the tires is undoubtably
when compared to running on four flat tires.
And what about the oxygen on the outside?
And how about comparing to the effects of road wear?
What is the point of eliminating the effects of two miles of driving
if you're going to drive ten thousand times that in a year?
I had to go to my grandma's to fix some horrible problem she was having
with her car. I needed to fix it before something horrible happened
because she thought it could blow up.
It was the washer fluid dummy light.
This is the local company. I have NO IDEA if this works or not.
I asked about nitro of the engine instead of the tires, but they just
looked at me funny.
