My van came with the power tank and I can get just over four fills from 25psi to 70 psi out of it. At expo a couple years ago I was talking to guys at powertank and they totally upgraded me with new hoses, regulator and handle for a small fee compared to what a new set up cost. I really like the co2 over a compressor.

This is good info, but what size tank do you have?



I was looking them over the other day after it was posted and it looks like they have 5, 10, 15 and 20# sizes. I did see that they have their fill chart, but it's always nice to know the real world translation.

Icky,

If you wouldn't mind, would you share what you used for your set up? Regulator, hose, etc.?

Thanks, Chris

CO2 setup

long ago but I believe I bought the CO2 pressure regulator, coiled hose & air chuck from Amazon. But they have them all over eBay. Look for ĎCO2 pressure regulator tiresí. Then just picked up a 5# bottle of CO2 for car & a 10# bottle for rv. Can trade bottles in for full ones at any welding shop. U can paint them black if u donít like rusty color but u wonít get same bottle back when refilling.

Ickys CO2 tanks

The 5# bottle has a fixed 150psi regulator (cheaper). The 10# bottle has the adjustable regulator. Can adjust from 0 to 350 psi I think. Hope this helps.
