Nitrogen filled coller

Just got access to a nitrogen generator,, is it worth me filling my new tubes,

I know lots of tyre depots give you the option now, less expanding in heat and slower loss due to bigger molecules,

Did a search and just found a good slanging match over it , has this moved on now, do people get benefits from it or not ?

Or will I die if I rip the side out of it on a mooring!

Nope. Air is 79% Nitrogen anyway.

Being as air is 79% nitrogen anyway I can't see much benefit in replacing the 21% O2 with N2. If it costs nowt, it won't do any harm & will be an interesting experiment. I've never had problems with the tubes going down, they hold air from year to year. If you were talking Helium, that would be different, H2 molecules are tiny & will actually pass through the tube material.

Stand by what I said before regards nitrogen and it collecting on deck.

Can I have the O2 that your not going to be using? That would be lovely.
