Found this resource last week. If this has been shared before and is a duplicate, I apologize.

I can count on one hand and have fingers left over on the rarity of instances I've ever had to add air to a tire while away from home and so I don't sweat the small stuff...just pay for the air for crying out loud...I mean what's a person out anyway, a buck?

Sheesh, here's a thought...cutting back on just one stupid latte aught to cover the cost purchasing air at the fuel stop at least four or five times.

I came across this site a while back. It is awesome. You can add gas stations where you find free air too. It has been a while but I don't think you have to sign in or make an account to do that.

I don't trust gas station air pumps...free or otherwise.I've read that they pump water,as well as air,into tires and,if true,the inside of tires don't respond well to water. I use a bicycle pump when my tires need air.It's free (after having bought the pump) and it's good exercise.

Extremely rare around here. I only knew of one station that had free air but since I bought an air compressor I don't know if the air is still free.

Some of the full-service stations have "free air" but the ranks are dwindling

It's nice to know where to get free air, but if you have to drive very far, the cost of gas outweighs the savings. Plus, most of the free air that I've seen is with weak compressors that can hardly give enough pressure to fully air my tires.

If you don't have your own compressor and check your tire pressure quarterly, then you are just headed for fresh road-kill.
