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.

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.

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