CO2 yet again

my boyfriend is into cars and told me that they have co2 injectors for cars, so my question is, could I use the co2 bottle they use for cars on my tank if I could find a fitting for it. and if so what type of fitting and reactor do I get

If your boyfriend injects CO2 into his cars or believes others do, please, find a new boyfriend.

That is (hopefully) what he means.

they use c02 to cool the intercooler and fuel rails on cars.i think thats what he meant.the setup kinda looks like a nitrous setup.the co2 is not actually burned in the engine.the fitting should be the same as a regular co2 bottle but if you buy it through a welding shop it should be cheaper.
