HOW TO FILL A TYRE WITH GAS

HOW TO FILL A TYRE WITH GAS
11/02/2020

Filling a tyre with gas is easy when you know how and understanding how to do it properly will ensure that you make the most of your fuel and increase your safety on the roads. In this guide, we’ll teach you how to fill your tyre, and what you should be filling it with.

HOW TO FILL A TYRE WITH GAS To fill a tyre with gas, first, you will need to locate an air pump or a nitrogen gas bottle. Next, you will need to remove the cap from your tyre – usually found on the plating just inside the rubber of the wheel – and apply the hose to tyre.

You should be able to hear the gas passing through the hose into the tyre, but if you feel the air passing over your hands, then you have failed to make a secure connection. You will need to wiggle the hose around a little to get a better connection.

When Is My Tyre Ready? You’ll need a pressure gauge to determine whether your tyres are ready for the road. A pressure gauge will show you the pressure of your tyre when you apply the gauge to the valve stem on your tyre. The air in the tyre will shoot into the gauge and push a small bar up that will tell you the pressure – the more of the bar you can see, the higher the pressure of your tyres.

You’ll need to check your vehicle’s specifications to know what kind of pressure is correct for you. You can often find this information in the manual, or on the inside of the door on the jamb.

What Can Happen if I Overinflate My Tyres? If you overinflate your tyres, you will find that your tyres will wear out much faster – you could be cutting their life expectancy by as much as half. You will also be more susceptible to crashes too, as it can lead to a loss of traction. You will also find that cars with overinflated tyres feel harsher to drive.

This means that it is important to check your tyre pressure with a gauge so that you can be sure when you have the right amount – trying to guess it just by looking could be dangerous for you and your passengers.
