Most new cars come with one as standard now instead of a spare wheel, what have you in your tin top?

Conscious of closing this topic off as suggested by Colin (Spanner Juggler) on a different matter, I have completed my purchasing session.
Here is how I spent my pennies:

Inflator: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000UPEHJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Gauge: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000VZ8S26/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

All good so far, other than the compressor being relatively noisy (I assume they all do this). eek

eek

Every power inflator I have owned has been noisy.
Gauge looks very similar to mine. smile

I’m looking for a portable tyre inflator and have come across this thread which was last updated in 2016 - are the products mentioned still relevant or what is the current thinking?
I’d like a unit which is compact, accurate and quick… recommendations appreciated…

In my experience, compact and quick do not go together! You’d be far better off getting a small compressor with tank from the likes of machinemart. You’ll find lots of other uses for it.

But you might not want to carry that in the Morgan. Or any other car come to that grin2
I have a larger compressor in the garage, but all my cars have a 12V compressor carried, just in case smile

You forgot to mention your impression of the Papal Conclave when it gathers at an M6 service area. 🤣

For what it’s worth spend the bulk of your budget on a quality pressure gauge and the rest on a cheapo tyre 12v pump. The gauges on the pumps are like Morgan fuel gauges!

Just pump up and trim pressures with a decent separate gauge.
