Unhappy Co2 trouble going to try Perma Seal / elbow grease!!

been having trouble...setup new pressurized co2...tank emptied in 4 days (750psi---to 300psi). So I read up and realized my kinky channel locks weren't cutting it, going to have to retry after I get it filled again today, cross my fingers. Think I'm going to pick up these

is the main connection usually the culprit (been trying to resolve this in my head) I could'nt find any leaks via the soapy water method so I'm curious, but I have to wait till this evening to fix.

That's what I have on all my cylinders. And they work quite well. You will still need to get a wrench and tighten the nut though.
