Source for CO2

OK, so I don't really feel like paying a bazillion dollars for a friggin powertank, even though it's got a nice fancy paint job. I started looking around for just a CO2 tank.... I stumbled upon this....

http://www.catalinacylinders.com/

All different sizes. specifically here's pricing for 15# $61.01 / 20# $68.74

Now I haven't looked local yet (welding shops etc...)

But, why should I give up my first born child for a friggin tank with fancy graphics.

Mike,

Search for Power tank and CO2 tank on Dweb. They had a thread about sourcing all the parts you will need and where to get them.

Mike,

Those are pretty good prices. I bought my 20# Co2 tank for $94 and I thought that was a good price. I bought from www.beveragefactory.com

How many tires can you inflate on a 20lb tank?

I have a 20# and have probably filled at least 30 tires from 15psi to 45psi (my truck likes 45psi on the road) I have also used my impact wrench and cut-off tool several times. I have yet to fill it up. I think the Power Tank page says you can fill somthing like 40-50 tires with a 15# tank, give or take a few. A 20# tank should be more than enough for months of wheeling. At the recent SCLR Rover Rendevouz I filled up several vehicles. I should probably buy a scale to determine exactly what is left in the tank. We use a heavy duty fish scale at work to measure our Co2 extinguishers.

Just step on your bathroom scale with the tank, then set it down and measure again. You only need to know the weight of the tank empty. Mine ten lb capacity generic steel tank weights sixteen lbs empty.

Good "heads up" on the Kegerator jabber!

After careful consideration (approx. 20 seconds) I went ahead and ordered one.

Think of all the time saved walking back and forth from the shop to the house for cold beer!

Rod, save yourself 3/4 of that money and buy something for the truck. Go to Walmart, buy a dorm fridge and buy a kegerator conversion kits for $90 from the same place. Did it years ago to an old fridge I had and it works great. So great, in fact, that I permanently installed iit n the kitchen when I built the cabinets. Kegerator is in the bottom half of the pantry, tap mounted on the outside over a bar/prep sink in the counter.

You are assuming I have a bathroom scale I'll take it to work with me. I think the cylinder weight is stamped on the cylinder, I think it is called the tare or tear weight.

I have a ten. It inflates 4 37inchers from 8psi to 30 3 times and inflates one air matress and operates a diff for about 3 trips before it goes empty.
