It's beer gas for pushing through a stout faucet.

i work for a welding supply company. i fill my own mixes for my stout beers. after much trial, i have found that i prefer the 70/30 mix over the 75/25 mix. i dunno if that helps.

you need a stout faucet to use that gas and raise the pressure up to between 25 and 30 psi.
