    By "Darn" don't forget that on Nitrox fills your normal mainland fill card price of ~$7 / tank is now ~$12-15 per tank in the keys...AT 2500 PSI !!
    Like everyone else said above, just borrow friends tanks & bring all your own tanks.

    Does anyone else feel like this man needs / deserves a round from us?

    I learn stuff that I didn't even know I needed to know...

    And then you say, "yes, but I knew that too".... but HE took the time to post it.

    Thanks!! I'm always learning something from this guy!

    When I owned a couple of LP85s Force-E (Pompano, Boca, Riviera Beach) and ScubAdventures (Naples) consistently would fill them to 3000. But neither of those are anywhere close to Key Largo. I've since sold them and gone with HP100 exclusively. I get consistent full fills in them at the shops listed above.

    I'm also in Sweden and never heard of a shop that will overfill tanks for customers.
    Lots of folks have their own compressors though, we always fill our 232 bar tanks to 270 bar, no one has ever died from having too much gas.

    Within reason, I try to give my money to those that take a pretty minimal extra risk and cost to pack tanks. From multiple principles. Pushing supply and demand. They care to help the diver beyond the normal. Stuff like that.
