Airgas or Matheson/Valley can't help you? What size are you looking for?

Yeah, it's like $700. It wouldn't hurt to check eBay sometimes people sell stuff like that Cheap that have no idea what it costs.

My local Airgas said I could rent one of their large tanks for $250/yr and pay for the blended gas.... ummmm... NO. They were less than helpful.
