Yes, either that or ionised water. Whenever I refill, I refill from the local place - like the hotel where I am staying in. All bottles are reused, none thrown away.

I know, checking air after a hot run is not correct, but could not understand why do you call it dangerous
Most of the non-automated tyre pressure gauges on the highways are inaccurate and 9/10, I have found they under-state the air filled in, which means you end up over-filling air. Roadside puncture walas are used to inflating truck tyres and have no sense of delicate handling of car tyres. Secondly, I have found they do some stupid things like releasing some of the hot air, then filling with fresh air, saying that it will help cool down the tyre!! When it will actually end up inflating the tyre to some unknown pressure as the hot and cold air mix after some time inside.

HVK sir, a very simple way to put it - you have many many fans and followers among us! Thanks to your methods and systems in place. Again the same question did we see the end of this trip? (had seen a post talking about getting out of Kerala via Munnar)correct me if I am wrong.
