I'm in the Brookline area and I drive to Framingham to get mine filled. Tropic Isle in Framingham Does Tank swaps for $15, they take your empty tank and give you a full one

Really old post but...

I had mine filled at AirGas in Boston.. They have 2 locations around my area.. one by MIT on Vassar Street and another on the other end of Mass Ave.. 8 bucks gets you a swapped tank.

They are also very helpful if you say.. strip your regulator fittings while trying to change out the manifold and needle valve.. =X

The price at Tropic Isle has gone up the principal remains the same- I think now it's $22 for a 5lb swap. Works for me. I have reasons to be there anyway, unlike welding shops. Brewing companies are also by far the cheapest to get co2 tanks from- I just did the research two weeks ago and I agree with the brewing company link previously posted. Still the best deal. Though I'm sure it's empty on arrival.

Emily, I live in Framingham and sell Tropic Isle a lot of my plants. I get my CO2 refills at a Fire extinguisher company in Worcester. They also do their own hydro tests. I'm sure you could find a better deal at a local fire extiguisher service company.

Plus I get to keep MY cylinders.

Yeah, maybe. Most recently I traded tanks at Blanchards in Allston (keg distributor) and ended up with a 40lb tank for only a few bucks more than a 20lb tank. It should last me for about 3 years at the rate I used the last one. Granted it's huge, it was quite the savings. Plus the look on the frat boys faces...

That sounds about right. I pay just a few $$$ more for my 20 vs the 10 pounder. Its mostly from the labor costs associated with the filling operation and not the gas.
