That is a shameful practice. As bc6152 said the regular air that goes into tires contains 78% Nitrogen and about 21% Oxygen plus some water vapor. And the idea of going back to dealer to top off your...

I've seen these pieces on several cars over the last few years (actually 10 or more years) and always assumed they were an option or accessory in another market. I don't believe I've seen them on a...
