Yes I know that but can you even buy a Nitro Fill pump? I am not going to pay a dealer to do this

My wife and I are scuba divers and my training tells me that the air we breathe is approximately 79% Nitrogen anyway. Just fill the tire with air.

Yes, even my dealer said they don't have N2 and just top with air. Consumer Reports did a study and concluded: Based on cost, convenience and actual performance benefit, we don't think nitrogen is worth it. A much better use of your money would be to buy a good tire-pressure gauge and check your tires frequently. This is a good idea even if you have a tire-pressure monitoring system in your vehicle. The warning lights aren't required to come on until you have less than 25 percent of the recommended tire pressure. Having the correct tire pressure will get you many of the benefits of using nitrogen and will ensure that your tires last longer.

I have special gas formula I use in my trailer tires. 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.039% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases in amounts too small to mention. Oh yeah, dry. As dry as possible.
