I had a painted tank with a rubber shoe on it. I was told by one place that tanks like those are normally coke co2 tanks. They told me they couldn't fill it because it is property of coke. So YMMV.

Has anyone tried the hoke 1315 metering valves with the 3 degree stems? How do they compare to ideal valve 1 series. Numbers seem like they should be really similar.
