Does using Fix-a-Flat (the can you can use to temporarily re-inflate and "patch" a falt tire) have any disadvantages? I have heard that it can clog tire pressure sensors, but it seems that the Gen 5 tire pressure monitoring system doesn't use sensors in the tires.

From my 2019 Owner's Manual:

"Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are significantly under-inflated. This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on and a message to appear on the driver information interface."
