Was at a BMW dealer looking at a 120,000$ car and they had the gaul to add $80 to price for nitrogen tire fill.
I thought people that could afford a car in this price range had some sort of brain matter that would never put up with this kind of BS.

Nitrogen is the cheapest gas you can buy, I had a welding company as a sponsor on one of my race cars he sold me my gas at cost, a Full K size (about 4 1/2 feet tall) was about 8 bucks, I doubt there is 10 cents worth in 4 car tires, Those K tanks will fill tires and run Impacts for tire changes all day long, Its a Rip off to charge that kind of money

Where is the fun in that quote???
I picked his other famous quote instead becasue without promoting Nitrogen filling - no one would be using it.

Now thats funny right there...
Off topic, but some folks have replaced the old R12 freon with propane as a substitute. Makes for an interesting situation in a collision......
My new V-lite has nitrogen fill from the factory. So far the tires are very stable with no loss. We will see what time brings.
