What ever happend to free air?
So I go to check the air pressure in my tires and decide to add some.
Pressures were down to about 32 - 33 psi.
I stop at a gas station and plunk in my 75 cents, give the handle a test squeeze and water comes shooting out. Had I not done the test squeeze I probably would have filled a tire with some water.
The water stopped coming out and I start filling the left rear. The built in guage would not go past 30 psi so I kept filling.
The sound I heard was not air going in the tire but coming out. The @#$&@#$% thing was off before I even placed the hose on the valve stem!
I would have been okay with that except I just spent money to let the air out of my tire.
I can't believe it costs the gas station more than a nickle per tire to maintain an air pump. It's not even a compresser.
I think I will buy my own air chuck and use the compresser at work from now on.
