    Default Nitrogen Tyre Inflation... for £1

    Kwikfit will charge £1 per corner to inflate your tyres with Nitrogen...

    However, not everybody recommends it...

    So, do they charge 78p a corner for normal air, seeing as it's 78% N2?

    Or should you get a 5% discount on the basis that 5% is still oxygen and not 100% Nitrogen

    So if Air is approximately 80% Nitrogen and 20% Oxygen anyway.... and Oxygen leaks 6 times quicker than Nitrogen... then wont you just end up with 95% Nitrogen anyway?

    Depends, how fast does it leak out and what effect does the pressure have on it?
