I agree; 2 months does seem a bit short for a 20 pound cylinder.

As mentioned, I would go over all your joints and connections with some soapy water to see if there is a leak anywhere (after you refill your cylinder, of course).

I found the leak issue it was on the back side of the nut that attaches the regulator to the tank, small bubbles galore! so some plumbing tape fixed it right up Thanks for the help guys hopefully this one lasts longer :)
You should not need teflon tape to attach the regulator to the CO2 cylinder; a new nylon washer should do.

I never use teflon tape on that particular connection.
