Are you serving exclusively heavy stouts or other big dark beers and do you own a stout faucet? If not you dont need Nitro...

I am 99.9999% sure that whatever your brewing will be perfect with just CO2, dont get upsold by your LHBS if their telling you that you need Beer gas they are ripping you off.

I'd say out of everyone that homebrews, maybe 25% keg, and out of those 25% maybe 1% use beer gas and or stout faucets. Its an extremely specialized need...

Yeah, sorry if it wasn't clear, but the only time you'd use beergas is when your faucets are 100+ feet away from the kegs, or when using a nitro faucet to get the creamy cascading head. Otherwise just use CO2. And to be clear, you don't use long lines with a nitro faucet, the restrictor plate in the faucet provides the resistance.
