- Should I fill my tyres with propane?
Surely the time to ask is -before- you buy it?
Very true. I bought it from a shop & had plenty of time to read the label but just assumed it was CO2. I shan’t hesitate to use it but was surprised to find the can contained propane. Something I would associate with camping stoves etc.
Now I am wondering why. Can the can be lighter than a CO2 cartridge because propane is held at lower pressure?Posted 8 years ago
Nitrogen is ‘better’ for F1 tyres I guess because it’s properties are known/controlled, so they know exactly how much pressure change they will get with temperature change.Posted 8 years ago
Air is likely subject to more uncontrolled variation (although it doesn’t have to be) due to varying quantities of water vapour present in it.
