I started using Nitrogen about 10 years ago, when an 'expert' mate I had put me onto it... In fairness, I DO recall not having to add any pressure to tyres for some time, but as it turned out; that was not forever. Strongest case in point; when a service last year pointed out that the tyres on one of my cars all needed replacing! - They were only about 10,000kms old (not Pirelli or anything special), so complacency got the better of me.

What I've found too, slightly off track, is that on 2 of the vehicles I had with plain old air in the tyres (note the spelling) the pressures stayed up very close to what I'd inflated them to, for a hell of a long time; one was my Harley and another was in the mags on one of the corvettes; both were alloy, so perhaps at a microscopic level, there's a better seal between the expensive (Pirelli and BF Goodrich respectively) rubber and the very smooth rims?
