    Oh, one more thing: @Mike1967 : These are USA (DOT) tanks. Someone *ELSE* will have to make a non-USA spreadsheet! (I'm envious of your tanks, BTW: the tank you quoted is both lighter and larger than any similar USA-legal tank... Maybe that's why Australia has annual hydros? :) )

    I don’t know but this is not an LP85.

    Which one? There are a dozen different ones. (‘The beauty of a “standard” is there’s so many to choose from.’)

    Got a manufacturer-supplied reference for *any* one? If so, I’ll happily take it.

    This list is not supposed to be exhaustive. The Internet is still there: you can get the generic info from there.

    I want this list to be accurate and specific. The silly argument above shows why: two people are arguing what an LP85 is. That’s why this list has exact model numbers.

    Seriously, does anyone have a from-the-manufacturer spec sheet for something like a LP72-2250? I would like to add it, but only with an authoritative reference. Otherwise, use one of the 50 other lists of dubious validity you can find in 30 seconds.

    Even if you found a manufacturer spec, the tank to tank variances are still quite large.

    Yep.
    Thank God they're different, I'm not a fan of the buoyancy swing of yours.
