I asked at my LHBS and the man said he gets about 4-5x 5gallon keg force carb & serving out of a full 5lb tank. Most HBS will fill CO2 tanks - also check welding and other places like that.

The reason I asked was also because I do not have a flask/beaker. If I use my thermometer to measure the wort temps, will I be OK? And 70-72*F is the best temp?
