might be co2. co2 itself has no smell, but there is usually a little sulfur added to co2 to make it possible to smell a leak

Fyi, they do not add sulfur to co2.

I think you are thinking of NG. They do add Sulfur alcohols (Thiols actually) to NG to give a leak detection odor.

This is one of the most ridiculous threads yet.

Random people weighing in with random, non-factual information.

Does it smell like coffee? I hear they add Starbucks coffee to CO2.

Absolutly it will google Mexico and nitrogen deaths. Nitrogen rich is anything over 90 %. Tim

Ok, I just googled it, and this Wikipedia article does not say that one breath of pure nitrogen will cause death. I didn't find anything that suggests that one breath is enough. But, I did my search in less time than it takes to asphyxiate with pure nitrogen, so please share your source.

Just closing off this thread, he found a small CO2 leak on his bottle. It's fixed now, the air inside is normal now.
