Oxygen is not flammable. It is one of the key components to fire, but without another fuel, it will not burn. Fire requires fuel, heat, and O2.

Apollo 1 capsule fire? It had pure O2, spark, flame, ded. After that, they (Nasa) nixed the whole pure O2 environment thing. Do things in a pure O2 environment become MORE flammable than they would normally be? Is that the case? I have heard that about O2 as well.

Essentially, yes. They burn easier because of the added O2.

The O2 in the Apollo fire (as any other fire) was not the fuel.

Think about it...if all you needed was O2 and heat, we wouldn't need gas to run an engine. Take the O2 away and there's no combustion.

The oxygen's not burning. The fuel is what's burning. The greater the amount of oxygen, the easier it is for combustion to occur.

As for nitrogen, aside from my car coming from the dealer with it, I've never used it in either of my bikes nor my cars.

It seems like it's a bitch to find.

Our car tires have all nitrogen in them, because we bought the tires at TireDiscounters and they include it for no extra charge. I think the main benefits for street use are that the tires lose pressure slower than with regular air, and the electronic tire pressure sensors inside the tires corrode slower if you plan to keep the car for 20 years.

My motorcycle tires have regular air and the little ceramic balancing beads inside of them. I think the tires lose air slower than with outside balancing weights, because there is ceramic dust generated from the rolling beads that fills tiny air leaks.

This is why I always add dust to my tires when filling them up.

Just so ya know... That bit extra they charge you to deal with TPMS tires is so that they can buy and install the rebuild kit for the sensor.

As for the second part, well if that's what you think then hopefully it works out for you.
