When I was stationed down there I use to get my tank filled at fire-x. It is off N Military hwy. When I was there a year and a half ago they would fill up the tank on the spot. I think it was like $15 for a five pounder. It's in Norfolk but right on the vb line. I use to stop and get my tank filled on my way Home from nob to vb.

I guess it's kind of diamond springs, but kind of not really. It's off military near robin hood. The first exit after you get off 64 and onto 264 east.

He fills and returns your bottle there.
I have went there before and got filled pretty cheap (+/- $17 for 10lbs) but recently he had something wrong with his filling station so he could not fill.

I just went up there today because he finally got his equipment fixed. I paid a total of $33 even to get both my 10lb and 20lb tank filled!!! I am set FOR A WHILE NOW, hahaha. He charged $15 for my 10lber and then only $18 for filling my 20lber, is this normal??? Anyway, great place to score CO2, I highly recommend for any Norfolk/Va Beach person in need.

By the way the place is located here:

Airgas flat sucks, they bought up most of the small independent welding supply shops in my area. The fill bottle price increase soon followed.
Try filling 250/280 cu/ft Argon or C25 bottles, ouch shop around and save $50each or more.

+1 The guy that runs this place is cheap, no exchanges, fill while you wait. Cash only if I remember though.
