Compressed air, the traditional medium for inflating car tyres, contains both oxygen and nitrogen, but oxygen leaks through the tyre walls three times faster than nitrogen, leaving tyres under-inflated. Using pure nitrogen ensures the tyre stays fully inflated for longer, which prompted the launch of TyreSaver. The generator can fill 25 to 30 tyres an hour.
