Maybe my chemistry is too old, but my calculations shows an ambient
pressure of 29 Bar.

To achieve that number, I used the PV=nRT formulae, the Perfect Gases Law.
Don't forget that the temperatures in this formulae are to be expressed in
Kelvin, not Celcius or Fahrenheit.

The figures are :
Gas volume is constant, if the accumulator is empty of oil.
P1 is 32 Bars at T1=313 Kelvin (273K + 40C)
P2 is unknown at T2=293 Kelvin (ambient 20C + 273K)

>From that, considering N2 as a perfect gas, we find
P2=32*313/293= 29 Bar

Am I right ?
