Tyre Pumps

Are there any garage forecourt tyre pumps left these days? I've been to four petrol stations in the last 24 hours and each of them is out of order.

 

Whatever happened to those value add services that garages used to have to differentiate? Vacuum Cleaners, Jetwashes, Tyre Pumps. They all seem to have disappeared or sit in a permanent broken state of disrepair.

Total garage at Kirk michael has one that works. May be a bit out your way though.

I've got one built into a boost-starter jobby, handy to have to be able to do things at home without getting aching legs pumping a foot pump, the garage things always seem to be in an awkward place, blocking the way, hose never long enough, if you move your car to them they think you're scarpering without paying :lol:

Thinking about it, the garage in Laxey has an air and water machine, DON'T trust the gauges though. Get a little digital one, they are just great.

 

Proof ( if any more be needed ) that Laxey is indeed the centre of the universe.

 

And there's a shop that sells felt things.......
