Ep. 82 - Gas 101 with Steve Sasaki, Founder of PowerTank - The Man Who Created the CO2 Tire Inflation Category ModernJeeper Show

    • Automotive

Hello ModernJeepers welcome to Episode Number 82 of The ModernJeeper Show… the show about Jeeps, Jeeping and Jeepers.
This week Matson, Corey and Jessy catch up about Matson’s 50th Birthday Party, the new self proclaimed Wrangler Killer (no, its not the Bronco), 7 year old competitors at the WE Rock Grand Nationals, Ultra 4 Racing in Moab and the upcoming Palo Duro Challenge.
Then they are joined by Steve Sasaki, founder of Power Tank and the original creator of the CO2 tire inflation product category. 
Steve not only talks about inventing a new product category and what it is like to stumble into a product idea, but he shares what it really took to build it right… from understanding regulators to the most difficult part of a power tank to manufacture - I bet you can’t guess that one.
This truly is a Gas 101 episode — Steve takes us on an educational journey into understanding Ideal Gas Law, why he chose CO2 over Nitrogen or Air, why you want a high flow rate, what he means by usable energy, why CO2 maintains head pressure, and why you shouldn’t ever waste your money on nitrogen for your tires. 
And he shares some stories about how hanging out with the right crowd can be a key to starting a new business.
As always, we are extremely grateful to our supporters including Warn Winches, Raceline Wheels, Bestop, Milestar Tires, Rugged Radios, KMS Adventure Rack Systems and, of course, Metalcloak.
So, sit back, relax with a cold one, and enjoy Episode number 82 of The ModernJeeper Show…
