I have purchased a new ecosport titanium+ diesel.
I have heard that nitrogen filling in tyres is a better option.
But, that's not available everytime at every fuel station and moreover they charge 100rs/- for nitrogen upgrade and then 20rs/- per tyre top-up.
Is it worth to spend this much money everytime for nitrogen filling in tyres?
Please suggest if I need to go with it or not and what are the advantages and disadvantages of same?
If in case of tyre puncture, nitrogen is not available, can we fill normal air? Will there be any reactions to with tube or tube-less tyres?

Nitrogen has higher heating point compared to CO2 what we normally fill. In case you want to go for a long drive and you have little old tyres, in that case nitrogen works better. Considering you have new car and the tyres are new forget nitrogen for next 40K kms.
