I would like to test Helium inflation when I get back to the states on my car.
The test would be to see if Helium makes tires run cooler since helium transfers heat something like 6 times faster than air or nitrogen. Fuel economy would be a secondary test with no result expected.
A worth while positive cooling result would be employed for use on my work truck and trailer tires.
