There's also an airgas in North Haven. I just bought a tank there two weeks ago, and they do refills.

Default Aero All Gas

I just found Aero All Gas on main st in Hartford. They fill tanks and it was $17.02 for my 5 lb tank.

Swapped out two 5# tanks at Airgas in North Haven a few weeks ago. Was charged $49. A bit steep. The guy said that was WITH a discount. Looking at the receipt, there was tax as well as a $5 hazmat fee. This company is a corporate entity whose prices are directed towards businesses, not homebrewers. It's nice to have something close, but I wish it wasn't so expensive.

For anyone in the Danbury area, Hocon on Payne Rd (near I84 exit 8), now fills Co2 as well as beer gas and oxygen. They will fill CO2 on the spot, but you will need to leave beer gas and oxygen tanks for a few days, or you can swap for the same price.

I recently heard that Foxon Park (local soda company) will fill co2 tanks - not replace. I forget who I was talking to but they said it was inexpensive and they fill.

Check your local paintball pro shops. Almost always fill while you wait. Screw praxair and airgas and their over priced fees.

I've been going to Nobby Beverage in Plainville for a few years. Paul is a great guy, especially if you have questions about keg/soda equipment. Prices are reasonable, but it's a drop-off and then pick up in a few days situation. They also have an exchange program where I "bought" the tank from them. To me, that was worth it, especially upgrading to a 5lb tank from the 2.5 I had.

OK...Just started kegging and went to Aero All-Gas in Hartord. Outside of the general location of the place on Main Street in North Hartford (tip: Go over your lunch hour), the place was great.

Cost $17 all-in to fill the tank. I have shiny new aluminum one, so it was important to have it filled instead of swapped. Got in and out in under 15 minutes and my tank was ice cold! Really went out of thier way to make me feel welcome too...As a newbie, I wasn't sure how it worked.

Friend of mine gets his tank swapped at Airgas in Manchester...He said it costs him $37 and it's a swap, and if you don't make a point of it, they could end up swapping out your aluminum tank for a steel one.

So there's one place to goto and one place NOT to goto...

I got my first tank at Airgas in Stratford. I paid something like $70 for a tank deposit fee on a 5 lb tank, filled. I like this because eventually when this tank goes beyond it's date I can just bring it back to them and swap intgo a new one. In the mean time, it's like I bought the tank, except that buying a tank and filling it would have been more expensive. It's almost like the first fill was free.

In the meantime, I found out that my local beer distributor is happy to have me walk-in and refill my tank for $20. Drinx unlimited. Really friendly toward homebrewers. And they'll sell you corny kegs for $35. They need some TLC but I bought 4, cleaned them up and they work perfectly. They even pressure tested them for me before I left.

That's in Norwalk, so I know it doesn't help you upstate guys, but I'm sure you have local distributors up there you might want to check out.
