Default 20lb Aluminum co2 tanks on the bay

I just found this seller on ebay in Texas today and snagged one. He has used 20lb aluminum co2 tanks at a decent price, and he is claiming they will come with a new hydro test.

seems like a good deal, but how much would it cost to fill that bad boy up?

Filling prices vary, but it gets exponentially less and less money to fill as you go up in size. I have a 5 and a 10lb right now, and I think it is like $10 to fill the 5 lb, but only like $12-13 to fill the 10 lb. I'm pretty sure it would be under $20 to fill a 20lb.

My local welding shop charges $12 to swap a 20# tank.

Only problem is when a 20 lb leaks, it leaks lots, (I just lost 10 lb today , and had to bitch to someone...).

I bought one from this guy. Worked out great! Hydrotest was all good. Local place just swapped it out
