Less air loss? Please explain. I do not see any of these claims holding water.

If you are a Costco member they will do this for free. Just remove your valve stem caps BEFORE having it done. The replace the caps with green ones so they know the tires have already been filled with nitrogen. They did this on my Stratus and couldn't locate the original caps when I asked for them.

The way it was explained to me is that nitrogen molecules are larger than air molecules, so they won't escape as easily. The nitrogen molecules are also expand/contract less than standard air molecules so tire pressure will remain more stable.
