well in paintball which uses CO2 some of the time it costs about 4 bucks for 20oz's. So it should cost about 16 bucks to fill. 20oz tanks in paintball last a good while but when using just liquid it runs fast. So i'd say you'd get 75 good uses out of a tank not including leak/pressure/temp expansion. I come to that number by figuring i get 800 shots out of a 20oz tank and this tank is 80oz's so 4 x 800 = 2400 and you'll use just about 2 times as much CO2 when in liquid form so 1200. Then a single paintball shot is about 1/4 sec of CO2. Average use of this liquid would be what? 4 seconds? So 16 times the amount used in a paintball gun. Take 1200 divide by 16 = 75 so with a 4 second burst you'd proabably get 75 uses.

If you've stayed with me this far.. it would be ~ 21cents per 4 second use.

Ok i'm gonna go hide in a corner...
