What size air tank an--
I have a chrome fire extingusher i used for an air tank[carry around]. I had a cousin get killed by filling a old air tank -the top valve blew off and hit him in the chest and threw him 10' killed him instantly by crushing his chest. I had a neighbor give me what appears to be a two gallon tank in that neighborhood. i painted it and put some "air"lettering on it, It says it has a 200lb capacity. Problem being The thing weighs a ton. REALLY!!If its to small just wondered what was the best size, to have around a garage full of bikes and streetrods.It holds air good ,after i removed all the fittings an re-sealed them
please let me know what you think????? bob s
ps Isn't yellow the color for compressed air, red is gas . blue is kerosene,??? etc.

Follow the direction do not over fill or knock it around, aluminum light weight. I have used this type for 5-7 years every weekend no problem, I'm still around.

Hers a question i forgot to put up here. If you have a bigger tank-it will hold mor air than a smaller tank,---So example' at 45 lbs delivery a 40lb tank will deliver air twice as long as a 20lb tank at the same delivery pressue 45. am i figuring this right??????And is your tank heavy?. mine small one, must be 20lbs. and its steel which would be safer than aluminum????? thank you for your help bob s
