In Family Motorcoaching I noticed an add for the "Powertank" RV tire inflator. (www.powertank.com) They claim it can inflate a 22.5" tire from 110 psi to 120 psi in 35 seconds using Co2
Is anyone using the Powertank? Is it hard to find a place to refill? Is is costly to refill?Thanks

I think that is a C02 tank similar to tanks used in welding or scuba diving. They are big heavy tanks that are inflated to 900-1000 PSI. Then regulated down to 120psi for normal tire use etc. The advantage is that a small tank can fill a lot of tires because of the higher pressure. Normal tanks only go to 120-150 so you basically get 6 times more volume of air.

Any welding or dive shop could fill them but I dont know what the cost would be

Using Carbon dioxide to fill a tire?

I have heard of using compressed air (21% oxygen, 79% nitrogen) and 100% nitrogen, but I don't know what the result would be using straight CO2. I would check with Michelin or Goodyear as I suspect they might have a problem although I don't know for sure. Please let us know what you find out.

RV Powershot is a co2 tank system that has been around for several years.

Carbon dioxide and nitrogen have been used for some time now.
