My right tire is getting low on air and I did not want to go to the gas station. I pulled out the compressor that has the rav4 ev but I read the instructions and it seems it only works with the sealant bottle. So you can't run it by itself just to send air. It seems to have a max psi of 50 or 60. Is there any after market hose I can buy to hook it up to the compresor and use it exclusively to refill the air in my tires? Can it even do that or MUST it have the sealant bottle attached?

This is a lame design on Toyota's part. I looked at it when I first got the car and decided that I will never use it. I carry a separate 12V air compressor in the car at all times. I also bought a plug kit so that I can pull out screws or nails and fix it myself when on the road away from services.
