Dear all,
As user of 2*4*300 tanks, I have encountered a slight problem. These are not huge tanks and getting a decent (~275 bar) fill is of some interest. It seems to me that a lot of places do not fill 300 bar but only 200 or 232. Ok, I am reasonably low on air consumption, but for deeper dives, it may be bit marginal. Shall I bite the bullet and get one of these majestically huge tanks such as a 10l or 12l 200-232 or have I only had bad luck at the fill stations? Also, is there a market for selling my loved ones or do I better export tham back to Sweden, where there is a good 300-bar market. People often give me funny looks at the dive spots (not necessarily because of my tanks)...

Thank you all for your input! Perhaps I have only had bad luck... I do love my tanks and would be reluctant to sell them. To comment on the above: Yes they are part of my trade mark, Well I am at least not wearing shiny boots..., 2*7*300 is too unbalanced and back heavy for my taste, Sorry gal, 340, Why? The gas law is useless above 275. In real terms this means that there hardly anything to gain beyond this pressure as it is hardly more than pressure (i.e. virtually no gas addition).
