Yes! I've bought so many tire gauges over the years, each one claiming "professional accuracy", including a Milton dually service gauge which I thought would have been my last purchase, but that too was out by a few psi.

I recently bought a Jaco ELITEPRO™ DIGITAL TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE - 100 PSI and it matches exactly my other Milton EXELAIR™ Digital Tire Pressure Gauge with Extended Swivel Dual Head Air Chuck.
So one goes in the car, and one in the RV.

When I served in the Air Force, the tires on our aircraft were filled with nitrogen. The tires would heat up quite a bit in flight, and using air in the tires would allow the pressure to get too high. Nitrogen doesn't change pressure as much at higher temps. A friend at my career job filled the tires on his car with nitrogen for that reason. Now I see that my tires I purchased at Costco are filled with nitrogen. Seems like a good idea.

FWIW, Mercedes-Benz recommends NOT using nitrogen in tires.

Okay, then. I have to admit, I had never heard about the nitrogen scam. I didn't know there are people out there selling nitrogen based on all these performance claims. I did believe that the pressure increase differential was significant, but apparently this is not true.
As noted in another post, Mercedes says nitrogen won't hurt your tires, but it is not worth it to pay for nitrogen. At least the nitrogen service at Costco is free.

Yeah, but sometimes you get nice pretty green valve caps.
