Default Places to refil Nitrogen in Mumbai

Hey, just filled Nitrogen in my tubeless 185/70s. Its great but I wanted to know and compile a list of petrol pumps in Mumbai that have nitrogen air. Don't wanna be running back to the service station everytime I want a refill, even if its once in 2 months...

I had got Nitrogen filled in my Swift tyres about 5 months ago. Though I sparsely used the vehicle, two checkups at same place confirmed that no deflation in the tyres. So am satisfied.

The Nitrogen filling is done at Wheelworld wheel balancing shop just below the Vashi to Palm Beach Road flyover (over Vashi R.S.). This shop is in the Haware building taking left turn just before the traffic point on Palm Beach Road.

Not much of a difference, my dad drives it more, i rarely drive it, i feel NO difference, i still dont know why nitrogen is filled. Also this is 1st time fill figures, once you fill you can tell him that it is only little less and do it for less, then you can pay 50 or so, my dad does this.


Sorry for delayed reply, Manoj. Being a bit busy, I am finding it hard to login to forums/blog. But I am happy that there are many people like Sunil, Anurag, Vinay and others who are coming ahead and helping people out.

As far as filling Nitrogen in tyres is concerned then I must say, it's already there. Normal air contains around 80% nitrogen so why bother about filling nitrogen in tyres. It apparently doesn't have any harm apart from the price you pay for it. If it's being offered for free at some filling-station, go ahead and fill it but if it's being sold for even 10 rupees/tyre, I would say, it's not worth the price!

Filling Nitrogen in tyres has NO apparent advantage over normal compressed air! It's a marketing gimmick, ignore it. All the claims made in your question don't have any substance. Checking tyre pressure is not a pain, whatsoever, do it regularly. That's more than enough.

Proven again and again that nitrogen fills only the wallet of the seller with no effect on the longevity of air in the buyer's car (diff. is perhaps 1% in 1 month). Just spend rs. 2-3 at a petrol pump and go wherever you want.

on Palm Beach where you come to the circle on the way to Galeria and City Centre from Nerul, the HP pump on the right fills Nitrogen, don't know the charges, but know it's there, think it's the same pump posted above, but I don't know sectors or streat names in Navi Mumbai, only landmarks like all the malls, CCDs, hookah joints etc...Hang out spots
