  • FYI: Just learned that NOS is illegal in Arkansas for street use!

    I was researching Arkansas code and found a law called Eric's Law: The Nitrous Oxide Prohibition Act, ACA 27-37-803, (a) (1) Except as provided under subdivision (a)(2) of this section, a person shall not operate a motor vehicle or motorcycle that is equipped to supply the engine with nitrous oxide on a street or highway. Beware! Be informed!

    Nothing new, illegal in many states now.

    Best option is to disconnect the bottle while on the street.
    Or hide the bottle well enough that the Cop can't see it without a complete vehicle search, at your own risk of course.

    Most states that have the law against Nitrous Oxide want you to physically disconnect it.
    A few states are OK as long as the bottle is closed, so a remote bottle opener is an option for those states.

      As far as I remember, nitrous oxide was never "legal" for street or highway use, in any state. It's for racing & off road use only.

      You didn't continue reading the law. The next line of that Section 27-37-803 - Use Prohibited states:

      (2) This section shall not prohibit:

      (A) A person from operating a motor vehicle or motorcycle that is equipped to supply the
      engine with nitrous oxide if the system supplying nitrous oxide is made inoperative by:

      (i) Disconnecting the line feeding nitrous oxide to the engine; or

      (ii) Removing the container or containers of nitrous oxide from the motor vehicle or motorcycle; or

      (B) A person from operating a tow vehicle or a recreational vehicle that is equipped to supply the engine with nitrous oxide.

      (b) A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor.
      May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.
