HPA tank to fill tires?

I was wondering if there is something on the market that allows me to put an adapter on an HPA tank to fill my car's tires?

If not, would it be possible to fill a tire with only using a 68/45 tank?

I was thinking about this the other day b/c one of my tires gets low every couple of weeks and the local gas stations air pumps are horrible. However, I usually have an HPA tank with me and was hoping to rig something up so I can just fill it wherever (it would be great for emergencies as well).

it's possible, but you'd probably want a regulator so you don't overfill your tire (meaning it's not cheap). You can find what you need at a local hardware store where the air compressors are. If you have low profile tires you can fill it using a floor dual stage bicycle pump pretty easily (cheaper).

Also, every couple of weeks your tire getting low indicates your valve stem might be leaking, try getting one of those valve stem tools and try to re tighten it before going crazy (cheapest).

Not helping with your question at all but I always use the compressors at used tire places. They don't give a crap around here.

What's an HPA tank?

I use an air compressor hosed into my garage, or a gas station/car wash.

You're not serious about that question are you?

I don't think they're that important. Ford decided to sell my car without one.

That's because they added 2 more cylinders back there for added reliability, dumby.

Maybe it fills it with paintbullets? You know, like that tire slime they sell to temporarily fill a tire if you have a blow out?

HPA, possibly but the amount of air in your tank vs the air in your tire are marginally different. CO2 on the other hand is a viable source and what a ton of offroaders do. OBA is probably the best choice as a small compressor is only like $30.

While possible probably cheaper to buy one of these. I use them for my Rally X car or if I head to the drag strip.

That's pretty cool is that a lithium ion battery you use for your Impact gun

Yeah they will work with Craftsman batteries for your drill or impact. Just make sure your battery is compatible.
