Just a warning for everyone, try to fill your tires with air at home cuz a lot of the gas station's air compressors are broken. I know quite a number of the chevrons air pumps are fucked and most of the gas stations with working air charge 50 cents to a dollar per fill.

I've seen quite a few that charge for air compressors, but the proceeds go to charity. I don't mind that..

Nevermind busted. I posted a warning about air from some gas stations spewing out water with the air. It was over a year ago, but one of them was the Shell station on Kingsway near Boundary on the Burnaby side. More water than air. I just happened to notice because I didn't have the air hose head placed on the valve properly. Good thing, because I would have had so much water in the tires. This was over a year ago, so perhaps they fixed it. I always check now or try to fill the tires with the trusty compressor at home. Free isn't always a good thing, I guess. BTW, how bad is water in tires?

You will get water vapor in your air even with your trusty compressor at home, unless you have some sort of air dryer/water separator system.

Knowing weather network's reliability, I wouldn't be surprised if this change later on, but other than the 5-10cm of snow forcasted for Thursday.... they are always predicting 1-3 cm on Wednesday

Yes, I have one of those oil/water filter thingys installed, plus I open her up at the bottom on a regular basis. Gotta protect me air tools.

Yeah, Calgary is apparently the 2nd coldest place on earth today... next to the South Pole. Suddenly -10 doesn't seem so bad anymore.

Are you sure?

The pumps at the Whatcom Shell aren't free.

Enough water will throw your balancing off at high speed, but a few bottle cap fulls is not going to hurt anything.

If you have steelies they might rust a little tho...

Man wash world in Richmond is pretty fucked up. Right where the galeforce dryer is is a huge ice puddle/lake and it takes a while to get through. Luckily I have winter tired but Tcs was screaming and car was still swaying side to side. The prius in the other bay with winters stood still for a while and she was given an extra free run lol.

I'd say the ice patch is abt 2 or 3 ft long and about 6ft wide. Don't go if you don't have awd/winters :/

At least car came out pretty clean and yes it froze a lot. Just a bit of water mark from where the ice froze but pretty happy for a $6 job
