    Ok maybe this is a dumb question. Why do the air tank systems out there use CO2 instead of Nitrogen which is a higher pressure gas? /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    More volume from co2. Stays at constant pressure until empty. Anyway you only need a max of 150.
