That would be a bit too far but it will be interesting to find out.

I've got one of those air compressors... Might pop up to Sainsbury's sometime and use it right outside their own pump to prove a point.

If all the customers complain I'm sure they'd sharp change it
I have to use pliers with mine to push it right over the tyre valve but it does work and is far better than paying a quid every time in a garage.

To be fair to them, I really can't see them charging for the water.

I will not be there for a while now because their petrol and groceries cost more.
Like I say, they had one pulling factor and that was the FREE AIR and they benefitted but now I won't be back.
I am like you though, I can't see them charging for the water.
