That's much more specific than I was going to get.

But as Dr. Strangeglove said it's vitually impossible to have a "spot" of spntaneous combustion inside a cylinder filled with O2, if that happened the entire cylinder would likely explode.

To even begin to go into Ken's worry of O2 "contaminating" his storage banks is an even more serious waste of time.

But one question that would have to be asked first is how would gas, whatever gas is in the cylinder get passed the check valve on the fill whip.

You do have check valves on your whips don't you Ken?
