Re: Nitrogen ?

Def. didn't read this whole post... but from what I did read and personal experience and training. Air + Nitrogen is fine. I used it in my car while I was working for a dealer and added air to it all the time. Nothing happened. When I felt like it I would hook all the tires up and put pure Nitrogen back in them. IIRC Nitrogen Molecules are bigger than O2 therefore the nitrogen leaks alot less than the O2?

Re: Nitrogen ?

Hm. I did some research and apparently N2 is smaller then O2, however it is only 8 picometers (that's to the power of 12).

I'm sorry for the misleading information - however I still have my objections to their quoting size as well as other claims. For instance Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. Also by looking at the Periodic Table a person can usually make assumptions between two elements. Sometimes there are weird quirks between them though.

Wow, that's awesome. I was trained to the idea that N2 was a bigger molecule.. thats crazy! Company Failure! I even remember the brochures they gave us and everything the n2 was like 4 times bigger!

Re: Nitrogen ?

I think the moral of this story is that there's no replacement for regular-*** air.

The sizes I read were about 300 pm for N2 and 292 pm for O2. It comes out to a 3% difference in size. In our everyday human measurements the size in nothing, not even noteworthy. Talking in terms of molecule size sometimes the littlest difference is huge. So I guess it is possible that tire membranes allow for that 8 pm size difference.
