Does anyone know if the compressor included in the trunk kit with the deflated spare tire is an air compressor or some kind of chemical one-time use deal (ala Fix-a-Flat)? Hoping for the former, but I think it may be the later.

I am pretty sure it is a compressor! I don't know for sure though!

The owners manual refers to it as a compressor pump you plug into the rear trunk power outlet to fill the spare with air.

In digging into it a little more I think it may be both. There seems to be a knob on the top that allows you to switch between air and a chemical sealant - and there is definitely a canister of the sealant within the unit. I'm not sure why anyone would use the sealant instead of the air though, since obviously that would render the spare tire a one time use.
