I have a nitrogen tank at home with a regulator, I have nitrogen already for the plane. If it is dry air it will be ok, air is about 80% nitrogen. It is the water in the air they do not want to get to the sensors. Nitrogen leaks out just like air. We use nitrogen because of the high pressure and dry air. When you fill your tires with air it's no different than nitrogen, as long as it is dry.
