Guys,

I bought the pump from Sai Iyengar Tyres. As it comes with a carry bag, I have not tried to fit it in a kid lunch box. More over, I have enough space in the boot of the car. I use it regularly to correct the tyre pressure. It has never over-heated. It runs off the car battery. Connects to the cigarette lighter slot in the car.

Have never had the chance to inflate a completely flat tyre yet. So cannot comment on how much time it takes to reach say 28 or 30 psi.

@zaks: Here is a picture for you. Spot the circled triangle on the body of your car and position the jack right beneath it. There will be four such triangles, one for each tyre, right beneath the doors.

Got a puncture, can I DIY?-26092008.jpg

Precautions before jacking the car:

1. Make sure that the car is on a level hard surface.
2. Make sure that hand brakes are on.
3. Never try to get underneath the car after raising it on the jack.

Cheers,

Rajan

Sudipto, a few days back I was at Minku's place for replacement of my failed new tyre (Thread:Yokohama ES-100: Tyre failure). I witnessed repairing of a Scorpio tyre there. What they did was, they inflated the tyres before putting in the probe and inflated it further before inserting the rubber strips thru the eye-shaped tool holding the strips. I am not sure as to whether because of the inflation or not, the tool visibly went in preety smooth.
