Im back to leaning this way. adding a two more 3200psi 80 cuft aluminum scuba tanks - bringing my total to 4.

When I get down to the last one, go fill up the other 3...and never run out.
With just 2 tanks I find myself waiting until the last one runs below 2200 to make the run.

A 97cuft 5000psi scba could/would allow for a few additional top off fills to 3000-4000psi... but that doesn't mean much for our little outlaw group... topping off to 2500 once or twice a day really isn't that big of a deal.
