How does your new fill location work? It's going thru the cab, right? Any vapor problems?

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Put nitrogen air into all 4 tires today. The average psi was 24 ! 24 ! Good Lord. I looked at the door jamb for the psi ratings and put them at 35 psi. Trucks literally feels like it has no rolling resistance.

It is completely encased in steel, like you would see in an old Chevy van for example. Fully welded and then calked for good measure.


I'd post a pic, but I can't access them from my work PC. But in this video start at around the 45 second mark. You can see it briefly behind the driver seat.

I buy my tires from Costco and they use nitrogen in all of their tire mounts. There is an air fill station where you can adjust the cut off fill psi. I normally see it set at 32 psi. My door jamb says 35 psi. So I adjusted the fill station to cut off the air fill and it obviously makes a world of difference in lessening the tire’s rolling resistance.

Nitrogen is also more stable than regular compressed air. No wild fluctuations in pressure with heat. I heard that NASCAR uses nitrogen in their race tires. It’s also about 80% of the air we breathe.

But highly recommended to use nitrogen.

Replaced the distributor in my ex's 2003 Nissan Frontier with the VG33e V6.

I'd heard lots of horror stories about getting the distributor just right on the KA24e engine, but it was a piece of cake on the V6.
