I was at powertank a few weeks ago. Owner showed me the monster valve system. Pretty trick. A bit fancy for me. I subscribe to the KISS principle.

Picked up 15 pound tank  for a screaming deal tho because it was on the blemish shelf.  Although, we couldnít find a mark on the thing.  Although it is bought air that runs out, should get over 50 tires aired up.  Tire takes about 20 seconds to air up.

I only get about 10 tires 35" from my 10lb tank.

I had a 10 lb tank, would air 5- 42 inch tires from 4psi to 26 psi.
Very quick, 22 dollars to fill in and exchange.
The problem with C02, besides cost is you really have now way of telling how much is in the tank.

Seems that CO2 would get costly and maybe even hard to come by in someplace like Moab where you're airing up nearly everyday.

It's worse with a "powertank" because your trying to find someone to fill your bottle.  I owned my bottle but would exchange them.

Yeah, that's what I mean, finding a place that will do it.  They've got to have an airgas or something similar in a place like Moab, but who knows we couldn't find anywhere that stocked a heim joint in April.
