If you can see the leak already why don't you fix it?
When you fill a car tire the air stays in for a LONG time (at 150psi) And why would you need to keep the air in "forever"?


Please inform me why you or anyone else would pump up a car tyre to 150psi. That would most probably go BOOOOM.
Try around 40psi :wink:

America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

So, you fill it up with your commpressor/bike pump at home and the air stays in.(since you want it to never lose air)
Drive to your nice open field.
Shoot a can.
And dirve back home to refill it with your commpressor/bike pump. :D

You don't need air to stay in for more than a few hours..... Bring your pump/commpressor with you :P

Usually properly solvent welded chambers can hold air for up to a week or more. If you know where you leak is use jb weld or something it isnt really worth posting a topic about.

Edit: use the edit button, instead of double posting.

But pop bottles are so much fun when they "pop". No false advertsing there....

No no, I meant that the bottle having "pop" in the title was not false advertsiing since the bottles "pop" when you put to much pressure in them. Sorry I could have worded my earlier post better.
