Artisanal Gas: “The Tires In This Vehicle Have Been Filled With Nitrogen” – An Institute for Nitrogen?

OMG:

P1200166 copy

Here’s the spiel from the “Get Nitrogen Institute,” complete with a promotional video from Jay Leno.

And here’s Click and Clack on this subject.

And here’s a dude what says the whole idea is a scam.

Now do I think the world needs a Nitrogen Institute? No, I do not.

And do I think this sticker on this car’s window is laughable?

Yes, yes I do.

    What’s the stuff that Costco uses when the put green caps on tire valves?

    Nitrogen. They have a machine that harvests N from the atmosphere.

    I’ve seen it on window stickers for new cars – $500 added to the MSRP for lifetime nitrogen service – you are welcome to come back to the dealership for some free N anytime you want. I think they take you from 78% N up to 90% N – it’s really no biggee, you’re not flying the space shuttle home…

    Wait; is it free range, grass fed organic nitrogen?
