I checked my bottles today and sure enough one of them is empty! I have the other 145 bottle and like Dave I own my bottles so this is likely to last a while, I use LP for most of my cutting chores anyway. The only thing I will have to quit doing is using my scarfing tip to remove welds or for weld prep but Acetylene has gotten so expensive already I was about to quit doing that anyway. I hate a stinkin Carbon Arc Gouge with a passion and those darn things have probably caused more weld failures than any one thing but I think I may have to just bite the bullet and drag the Darn thing out since nothing but Acetylene works satisfactorily for flame gouging.
