What size bottle are you using?
How many runs are you getting out of it?
What all are you using it for?

added weight and just another piece that can go bad.
Seems question was too hard for some to understand.It is for those using co2 not for those wanting to add weight and cost.

Anyone with reply to question?

My 10 oz bottle will last an entire season and more operating the sle, shifter and occasional throttle stop...typically 150+ runs....if I don't forget to turn it off at the end of the day.

Same answer from me.

10 oz bottle...lasts all year usually.

Shifter & t-stop...and I pretty much only S/C race anymore...so the stop gets used a lot....

I have an electric solenoid that shuts the bottle off wired to the ignition.

I use the screw in brass with rubber o-ring seals sold by ChassisShop....

I carry a spare bottle.....and all races I go to someone is there to fill one if needed....$5

Local paintball store 5 minutes from my house $3 to fill a bottle and is always open...

I had a chrome bottle develop a leak last year.....right where the valve is attached....very slight but it doesn't take much to empty one. I need to buy a replacement.

I usually shut the bottle off with the manual valve after racing is done.....

Chassis Shop also sells better aluminum handles that don't break like the plastic ones do....

I use the 5lb. bottle and carry a spare in the trailer. It lasts a long time. I know Pivotdoc asked APD about using the compressor with the Maxspeed Carb and they told him they prefer C02.

I don't see why it wouldn't work fine but that's what they told him. You get a small reservoir with the carb to help eliminate any pressure variables I guess.

Pick your poison and let's race. LOL

I use mine for SLE, shifter and Throttle Stop. I have the Biondo inline on off soloniod. I usually fill mine once a month just to make sure I keep all the liquid in the bottle. I keep a 2.5 lb in the trailer as well as a spare 10oz. I do have a fill nozzel in the dash which makes it real easy to fill.

I mostly T/S race and when I'm not I use the SLE. With no leaks I can get all year out of a bottle. I use a 10oz and have two spares as well as a 40# fill bottle in the trailer.

I never have to fill a bottle nor do I have to remember to open or close a valve. My air supply is endless and has never failed me in 3 seasons and over 600 passes.Ice Cream

10 OZ for me. I have a spare, plus a fill bottle. The fill bottle is a 20 lb one. I can fill a 10 OZ bottle in about 10 seconds. I filled it 5 years ago, filled both of my 10 OZ bottles each year, and saved a few racers butts at the track. If you get a 20 LB bottle for your trailer, get one with a bottom siphon. If it doesn't have a bottom siphon, you have to turn it upside down to fill a bottle. You can get the fittings to refill the 10 OZ bottles at any welding supply.

The bottle will last much longer if its mounted vertically instead of horizontally.

My 10oz bottle will last all year using a SLE and shifter. I keep a spare bottle in the truck. Also remember that 10 oz bottles don't have to be re-certified via pressure testing. Larger sizes do, which is about every 5 years (and cost money).

I use a 10 ounce bottle that will last a very long time. Very reliable but I still carry a loaded spare in the trailer. I use it to activate the throttle stop for both Index Racing and as a throttle stop enhancer for Bracket racing. I use CO2 instead of air due to the amount of water in the air, CO2 is more reliable.

The shifter in my car is electric.
