Guys that are mounting there air bottle under the dash do you find yourself going threw a lot of air bottles?
Generally, bottles mounted on there side won’t last as long

seabass that's what i was told also. on my other car it was mounted up right and would last all season. now that its on its side it don't last long at all.
Put a air compressor on it and be done with the bottles. Best money ever spent on a race car
what brand or type of compressor are you using?
K&R air compressor.

I turn mine on when I put it in and turn it off when it runs empty. Normally that is around 1 month.
K&R plumbed to the front and rear of the car also
A vertical bottle will definitely last longer than a horizontal one but if your system is sealed well & functioning properly you should only need to refill a few times a year. I have an air shifter & starting line enhancer and I open the bottle in the morning & close it when I put the car away and only have to change it a few times a year even with it mounted horizontally under the dash.

VIAIR 1000 little over hundred dollars plumbed to air chuck also in case need touch up in lanes have on all 3 cars ....over 6 years now
My 10 oz is mounted horizontal. Shift 2x per run. Good for over 350 runs.
Open bottle beginning of day and close at end. If at 1000 psi when shutting off it will take almost a week to leak down to less than 100 psi.
My electric over air shift solenoid is mounted directly on the shift cylinder.
seems like every solenoid ive had leaks
opinions are worth what you pay for them

All the Humphrey 310 that I have used and others I know that use these leak at some point after installing.
To fix this, scribe a line on the plastic / brass piston cover and aluminum body to show where the cover needs to be returned to when re-assembling.
Remove the spring and piston. Clean all the factory grease off the piston sealing rubber and the seat face inside. Re-assemble dry.
I’ve found the grease picks up any dirt in the system and causes leaks.
