NitroFill Tires

My tires came from the factory w/ NitroFill. Question is do I continue to fill the tires w/ NitroFill (only 1 place near me and not sure the cost) or do I add compressed air? I'm assuming its going to cost between $5-10 a tire to top off every time.
Are the benefits really true and worth the extra cost??

Here are some threads from just the last month or so:

That's what I was thinking but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some huge benefit. Seems like a lot of cash to keep topped off but then damage from a blow-out is a lot of cash as well. Had 2 friends w/ blow out on TT so I'm a little more nervous about it. We check the pressure before all trips and drive between 60-63mph.

I've read a lot of claims that the pressures don't fluctuate due to temperature as well... I'm a diver and dive on both O2 and Nitrox (nitrogen) and can tell you that is a load and a half.

It expands and contracts JUST fine!

Like it's been mentioned, they say nitrogen fluctuates pressure less when the temps change. I've had both nitrogen and air filled tires and both fluctuate the same.

Just another example of companies preying on the consumer.

We may be able to get Nitrogen in the tires for free. I just found out my Tundra has Nitrogen in the tires and Toyota always tops them off for free. They told me I could bring the camper buy as well.
