Hello all, I live in the South End in downtown boston near Skiptons. I was wondering where I could go around here to refill my C02 tank, I don't want to go too long with out it running. Thanks in advance.

I know there is a place, local, that is a real good deal, but I don't know what it is called. A bunch of BRS members go there, c'mon guys.

Arco in Malden, it cost 15-20 bucks and they fill it while you wait

I found the two BOC locations in Cambridge. Do you guys have any idea on the pricing? I think my tank is 5 lb.

I wonder how much mileage we can get out of it before it gets tiresome :)

Kurt - the price Ray listed above is about what I recall for a 5lb cylinder, $15-$20.

Do they fill it or they do switch your canister?

Well I ended up going all the way to Arco in Meldon(a 20 min drive) and had to drop off the tank since it was not completely empty. I guess there can still be liquid weight in the tank even though the gas has been used up. Anyways the valve needs to be open for 24 hours before it could be filled with new gas. Then I come home and see this post and realize that there is an AGA Gas right down the road from me :mad: Oh well...by the way the Arco people said the 5 lb tank would be about $10 to fill. Thanks for all the help.
