I really dislike my 2018 Honda Clarity included emergency tire infiltrator. I tried used it for the first time last week to inflate my tires to back to 36 PSI, but it loses about 5 PSI or more when unscrewing the adapter. There are other 12 volt compact car air compressors online ( https://amzn.to/2URtUZY ) that do not have the long screw on adapter. Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.
Most of the time, I use a battery operated combination car jumper air compressor ( https://amzn.to/2JqPqz8 ) that keep charged in and use in the garage and have in my trunk during biking trips. I also use it for a 12 volt power supply.
The problem with the Honda emergency tire repair sealant and air compressor is the long tire adapter. The length and time to unscrew the adapter lose about 5 PSI or more. That means i need to inflate my tires to about 41 or 42 PSI to have enough for the recommended 36 PSI. I do like the lighted gauge and that its accurate when checked with my digital air pressure gauge ( https://amzn.to/2UprO4e ).
Sure its meant for emergencies, but i use my 2017 Chevy Volt tire air compressor with tire sealant all the time during my road trips. It doesn’t have this issue. I am not going to modify the air compressor but I will note that I need to inflate the tires to 42 PSI to end up with 36 PSI. I hope this helps other Honda owners with the emergency air compressor kit.
