Free Air Pump

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

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.

Should be illegal everywhere to charge for air. But only in a white mans world is it ok.

I always ask the attendant inside to turn on the pump. No issues.

The only problem is not all pumps will go to 80psi which is what I need and ends up deflating my tires.
