PetraFlate’s Comprehensive Roadside Assistance Program
Accidents happen, and it’s important to know that you have a safety net to catch you when something goes wrong out there on the road – even if it’s as simple as locking your keys in the car on accident. Most people are familiar with AAA for roadside and hazard assistance, but there are other options available to keep you safe and in motion. In this article we introduce the PetraFlate Nitrogen Tire Inflation Program and the PetraFlate Auto Club for roadside and hazard assistance. We explore the differences between these two programs and how by choosing PetraFlate will offer you many of the same benefits as AAA while also saving you money by giving you two services for the price of one.
The PetraFlate Nitrogen Tire Inflation Program
Nitrogen tire inflation is a great way to maintain your tire pressure over time, minimizing the possibility of a blow out while giving you better vehicle handling, increased fuel economy, enhanced safety, longer tire life and a reduced carbon footprint. Based on studies performed by Clemson University, inflating your tires with nitrogen instead of compressed air may increase your tire life by up to 50%, your fuel economy by 10% and can decrease tire failure by as much as 75%.
The Benefits of PetraFlate
Driving on nitrogen-filled tires keeps them cooler and reduces the wear on sidewall flexing that can weaken rubber over time. Water vapor from humidity that naturally occurs in compressed air can absorb and maintain heat, increasing the temperature of your tire’s rubber. Nitrogen, on the other hand, remains more constant in both temperature and pressure, keeping your tires in good shape for longer. With better tire pressure retention and increased tread life, you will save money not only on the life of your tires, but also through increased fuel economy. With the rise and fall of atmospheric temperature, tires filled with compressed air fluctuate in pressure, causing you to drive on underinflated tires, which can be more dangerous and lower your fuel economy. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under-inflation can reduce fuel economy by 0.3% for every pound per square inch (PSI) drop in pressure. Since nitrogen has a larger molecule size than compressed oxygen, it leaks through the permeable rubber membrane of your tire at a much slower rate, maintaining your tire pressure at optimal levels and lowering your carbon footprint.
PetraFlate Versus AAA – The Differences
The American Automobile Association (AAA) has been a household name since 1902. It is a comprehensive, excellent service, but it’s not the only game in town capable of providing you with the roadside and hazard assistance you need to stay safe and in motion. AAA offers different tiers of services that range from $50 a year to $260 a year, depending on individual needs, but none of those packages include nitrogen tire inflation. PetraFlate versus AAA – PetraFlate offers similar roadside and hazard assistance services for FREE for 1 year through their Auto Club when you register for a PetraFlate Nitrogen Tire Inflation Service. Auto Club services include:
- • Tire Repair
- • Tire Replacement Coverage up to $800
- • Wheel Repair Benefits
- • 24 Hour Emergency Towing Service
- • 24 Hour Emergency Road Service
- • 24 Hour Emergency Fluid Delivery
- • 24 Hour Emergency Battery Service
- • Lost Key or Lockout Service
- • Travel Benefits
- • Theft and Hit & Run Protection
- • Trip Routing Service
- • Trip Interruption Coverage
The Bottom Line
The main reason to choose the PetraFlate program is that not only will you experience all of the benefits of nitrogen tire inflation (increased fuel economy, prolonged tire life, etc), but you will also receive 1 year of comprehensive roadside and hazard assistance services for FREE through the PetraFlate Auto Club.
