I have a larger compressor in the garage, but all my cars have a 12V compressor carried, just in case smile


Thanks for the replies. I'm now considering a De Walt inflator as I already have batteries etc https://www.toolstation.com/dewalt-dcc018n-xj-18v-xr-inflator/p56981 seems to get good reviews... fingers crossed it does the job spend

How long ago was that? If I remember correctly it was RTA? Time flies by so quickly.

Remember the ‘team’ tyre change? Wonderful memories buddy.

It was RTA. 2012. The rewire went well, with additional fuse protection added. It went to a new owner in August 2013 (still miss it!).
Bought current car in 2013. Had to go back through a bundle of emails to double check all that. smile
Forgotten the name of the town where the wheel change took place, but north of the border. That spare had very little grip! Three T-Tracs fitted after we returned home.
They were great trips. Next year - I hope!

RTA was a lovely car. I still remember a previous owner showing up at Waddeson Manor.

Yes, so do I.
He is registered on here, too. but haven't seen him post for a while. Last met him at Shelsley ToTH, by then I had the current car.
RTA was needing wings and would be on for a full engine rebuild in another 20+k miles.

I have one that I bought as a back up. I find the gauges on them inaccurate so have a couple I use. One digital and the other the pop up tube type. They both match readout perfectly . I have a compressor in the garage for routine checking and top ups.
Never had a car without a full size spare nor tried the goo you put inside as a sealant.

Interesting to read the comments. I have had the Halfords electric inflator for a few years, it works well. I also have a pocket type pressure gauge (the sort that looks like a pen). It's very old, I think it belonged to my grandfather! I've noticed there is about a 10% difference in the reading from my gauge and the digital display on the pump but I'll admit I've always sided with the pump. I've now ordered a RaceX gauge as recommended here to see how its readings compare.

Well done Ian… I followed you and purchased the Race X gauge and then settled for a Halfords rapid digital inflator at £40. Both have proved to be fast and accurate. What a difference it makes to have correctly pressurised tyres and not be shuffling around for 20p coins only to find the local garage inflator out of order smile

20p sounds like a bargain the BP chain charge an outrageous £1 !!!
