Yeah, I just punched in the numbers and it shows 10.5 fills. I don't know where I messed up the first time. I 'm already at 13 fills though going from around 140bar to 245bar. I keep a little log book so I know the amount of fills and the beginning and ending pressures are accurate to within about 5 bar. I guess I'm about ready to get it refilled! When I bought the tank, I thought I'd get a lot more fills than that though. I'm hoping the AofA calculator is off a bit. I also have a 80cu ft 3000psi scuba tank. Does anybody know how much cascading will help? I guess I need to give that a try. If I go from 2030psi to around 2800psi and then top it off with the carbon tank should help a lot. I'll punch in the numbers and see what that shows…

So,just checked the AofA calculator and it shows if I use my scuba tank to fill the gun to 2800psi and then top it off with the carbon tank to 3553psi, the calculator shows I'll get 21.3 fills out of the carbon tank. I didn't know it would help that much, that's more than double the amount of fills I get now. I need to start using my scuba tank too I guess, it's just sitting right there next to all of my other PCP filling equipment. Thank you guys for the info. opened my eyes I guess. I also asked the question just in time, going to need more air asap and it's good to know to take the scuba tank too. I just love Airgun Nation, what a wealth of information. Thanks, Stoti
