How Does Nitrous Oxide Work in Cars?

While thinking creatively about Nitrous Oxide in Cars, the name of the famous action movie ‘Fast & Furious’ must have already crossed your mind. Well, the short burst of speed at the flick of a button is all a real deal. We prepared the following blog to understand this great use of nitrous oxide.

Nitrous Oxide in Car Racing

Nitrous oxide can serve many purposes. Among these is powering up your car’s engine. But how does it work?

In-car racing, nitrous oxide works essentially as an accelerator of the combustion process; it boosts the oxygen levels of the engine. Meant simply, N2O acts as a supercharging system that offers extra vehicle power: horsepower, for a short period.

In more technical terms, the increase in oxygen aids fuel burning as it pushes the piston harder and produces more power. Nevertheless, not all cars can operate with a nitrous oxide system. For instance, NOS is not legal in Spain. If an authority has it approved, it is permitted to drive vehicles that incorporate them, but activating the system is not allowed.

Do you intend to use ExoticWhip bottles to fuel your car? Take into account that our bottles are 100% food-grade, for which any other use is not tolerated. We warn our customers about this fact in advanced.

Characteristics of nitrous oxide

Finally, now that you know how nitrous oxide operates in car racing, you might be interested in learning more about the gas itself. If so, these two additional features, related to the information displayed above, can lighten you up.

  1. Nitrous Oxide is a naturally occurring gas that is colorless and non-flammable. However, it could accelerate the burning of combustible material in a fire.
  2. It can be manufactured and used for various things, such as a pharmacologic agent to produce anesthesia, a propellant for whipped cream, and an additive to fuels to increase available oxygen in combustion.
