First off, why aren't 3 letter words searchable?

I am upgrading my kegerator to a two-tap version. When shopping for gas line, is there a standard tubing length? I know you have to calculate distance from keg to tap for beer line, but if I go 4' per line (conveniently, I happen to have 8' here already) am I OK? It's a standard half-fridge with the tower placed on the bar.

Gas line length doesn't matter. You can use whatever you need to get from the tank to the kegs. Mine are 6 feet, which is a little too long in the little fridge that I have, but it's better too long than too short!

The ammount of gas line doesn't matter like it does for the beer line. The only thing that matters is having enough so that you can conviently connect your kegs.
