Having spent the time and money to have on board air, I would never do it or suggest anyone to install it again. I used my then 1/4 full CO2 system more then my oba system. Mainly for the fact that it is portable and not vehicle dependent.

The fact that they are finite, and bulky are my two issues with them, but I think they are still good, for certain things.

But its useless scrap metal when you don't keep it full.
This holds true for a car, boat, motorcycle, lawnmower, chainsaw, weapon or any other item that runs on a refillable source to make it useful. Reading the responses of some in this thread makes me think if your lawnmower is out of gas you should go buy a different one instead of getting the gas can filled.

Yes, but I can get the gas can filled whenever I want, 24/7.

And I don't run them out of gas. However, I have seen MANY times where someone has a powertank, and it either runs out on the trail, or you ask about using it in a case like this, and its 'oh, its empty'.... and you can't just go down the street and get it filled. When do you need them? Evenings and weekends, which is the times that you can't get it filled.

Nothing wrong with them, but nothing wrong with having an electric back up, too. A quality electric thats compact. Probably have a portable jump pack around, that + the little electric compressor is just as portable.

Jeez, go get a old school foot or hand operated pump. Maybe Snap-On makes one for $100 more than necessary, so he can feel awesome.

I can never understand people who would rather have nothing, if they can't have the perfect situation.

The CO2 setup that I have is my portable air source. Thus is why I asked if anyone knew where to get a CO2 tank filled. My trailer has been stored elsewhere and doesn't have access to power.
So I go back and look at Skoot's first posts. All he did was ask a simple question. Instead people tell him to go buy other items to do the job. Why should he spend money on a 12V or portable air tank when he might be able to get his currently owned tank filled? He didn't say he wouldn't or couldn't do it another way, just that the co2 tank was his preference. Where in these posts did he say that he wanted the perfect solution or no solution at all? What I read is "I need a tank filled, anyone know where that's possible?"

I'm glad I use a generic tank for my CO2 setup. I don't care what tank I get so I don't have to worry about filling it, just take it in for an exchange, much easier.

Day late and a dollar short, but both Flint Welding and Lessors up this way are open on Saturday mornings for your future Saturday needs.

Ah ha! So those who say he's stupid for having something that can't be filled just maybe, might be wrong?

I'll be the first to give skoots a when needed. But I'm not one for jumping on the bandwagon just because he's an idiot the other 95% of the time.

That's why asking a question around here is a waste of time.
