    Free air 15th May 17 at 11:27 AM
    Used Sainsbury's air line for a few months, when it was out of use I started going to Morrisons as you get a free pin when you buy fuel.
    On Friday I needed fuel and was passing Sainsbury's and noticed the air supply was renewed so just did two tyres that usually need a top up, noticed that the car before me was taking a long time to do his tyres and when I started I could not see the gauge from my position but I had set the pressure at 31 psi and in the end it beeped and I then did the other wheel. Saturday I drove about 60 miles ok, on Sunday on a long journey doing 70 on the motorway I got the 'check tyre pressure' warning.
    Pulled into a garage and used my pencil gauge to check which tyre was the problem, the first I checked was the first I had done on the air line on Friday, it was 44psi same for the other one I had done on Friday, the two I did not do were 34psi.
    Looks like the new air supply in Sainsbury's is faulty, I will be passing there today and will let them know, could cause a problem for someone.
    Think I will go back to using my own compressor.

    After the EU referendum, it will no longer fit. Atleast we got our whatever back.
