Review: At the beginning I loved this beast but it started to breakdown. I bought this tank(s) because of its looks and that is was made by DYE but this was a great mistake. The first thing I noticed was that the air was leaking right after i got my tank filled. I would fill it to 3k and then it would leak to 2k. People said this is because it loses air due to settling but that was too much, 1k. I hated this a lot because my first gun was a Tippmann A-5 and that was a fat gas-hog and I needed all the air I could have.Then when I took my tank home with 2k, two days later it would be a zero. This pist me off, so i went to my local paintball store and the people were nice and they exchanged it for me. And of course that one leaked too. So I'm really mad and I just don't know what to do. I have no money for a new gas tank, so I sell my upgraded Tippmann and buy a stock Ion just so I can get more shots per tank. So now I have tried two of the same dye tanks and they both leaked and did the same thing.
Conclusion: To make a long story short, I tried two Dye 45/45 Tanks and they both leaked. I might have been unlucky but if you feel lucky buy this tank but I surely don't recommend it. Thanks for reading my review

I had a Pure Energy tank (4500) that leaked badly on me... 6 hours and it would go from full to empty. It pissed me off at first, but all I had to do was tighten the fill nipple about a half turn, and it stopped leaking. If that doesn't fix it, take your reg off, take it apart, clean it, change any o rings that are scratched, and lube it. Sometimes you get bits of dirt or sand or whatever in your fill nipple, and it ruins the seal. Make sure your tank is empty though...
