I have never seen any scientific proof that nitrogen's supposed benefits exist in the real world, only anecdotes.

This nitrogen theory has definitely come down from airplanes where it is used to prevent fire in hot wheels during braking at the time of landing. having hot nitrogen inside the tyres is safer than hot air having 20% oxygen. in cars ???

Its funny that when a leper comes begging, or a man with bent and missing limbs knocks at our window, we look away, or we give 2 rupees and feel great, but think nothing of pouring 200rupees worth of nitrogen into our tyres because it makes us believe that we really got something.

To the nitrogen fillers, I suggest next time, instead give your money to someone who could really use it.

You have not seen any proof because none exists. i have always said that if you have access to 99.9% dry compressed air then you dont need nitrogen.

The second side of the coin is that the compressed air available in our petrol bunks is always loaded with moisture as they do not see it fit to use an air dryer along with the compressor. They just use a small air filter and think that it is enough for drying the air.

Nitrogen that is available over here is relatively dry when compared to the above mentioned compressed air. Hence it make a very small amount of difference.

I use dry air and find it much better than nitrogen. But not everybody has access to dry air.

I'd like to see scientific evidence of the difference that wet vs dry air makes in the real world.
