Yes Coolboy007,

It's free only here in IOCL,Chennai.
If you fill XtraPremium or XtraMile,Nitrogen Air for all tyres is absolutely Free.

But i forgot to fill it in my stepney.

After Nitrogen Filled in all tyres,the ride is little bit stiff/bumpy.
I have filled 33psi and 30psi in front and rear respectively.
The same psi in normal air gives a very smooth ride.
Next time i'll try with some less psi to get the velvet smooth ride back.may be 31psi and 28psi.
Is it ok guys.
Anyone using Nitrogen faced this issue.
what is the psi you used to fill in Front and Rear tyres.especially Linea Diesel owners?

Hi! I too had the same issue when I first went for 33 psi after reading in t-bhp. As it was too bumpy, I went to my dealer, who advised not to go for 33 psi at the time of N2 filling. It was reduced to 30 psi in all 4 tyres and till date, not felt bumpy ride at all. My dealer has N2 filling facility, so just did this at dealer's place only.

Forgot to say another important point.

After Filling Nitrogen,I feel Steering is very light and it's like driving a Linea petrol.
It's very convenient to drive in City traffic chaos now.

Is there any psi/pressure difference between Nitrogen and Normal Air?

Default Update : Nitrogen Fill

Yesterday i went to IOCL and reduce the tyre pressure by 30psi in front.
now my setup is 30 psi in both Front and Rear.
But i am still having bumpy ride in the rear.
So plan to reduce 3psi in Rear.
So it will be 30 psi and 27psi in Front and Rear respectively.

The Airwala in the IOCL told me that In normal air dispensers if you fill 33psi means it fills only 30psi.there's 3psi difference in it.
But in the Nitrogen dispensers it should be very accurate.so he suggested me to reduce by 3psi in all tyres.
I replied that i just try with 30psi in all tyres and if not feeling good i'll come morrow and reduce 3psi from rear too.

So today i am visiting again IOCL and reduce 3 psi from Rear and ride Streak as better as before

Default Update : Nitrogen Fill

Yesterday went to IOCL and reduced the Nitrogen gas in Rear tyres by 3 psi.
Now Streak has 30 psi and 27 psi in Front and Rear tyres respectively.
Now it reclaimed the earlier smoothness.Bumpy ride has disappeared.
I don't know whether this psi is OK.
Guys post your comments.
