Apparently it takes longer to 'bleed' out through the tyres than air so should keep your tyres pumped up longer and therefore use less fuel etc

It also benefits from less pressure fluctuations from temperature... so your tyre pressures stay more constant.

Last time I went to Kwik Fit for a puncture repair they used nitrogen. You don't get more mainstream than that...
