Interesting what you can find when u search all i did was put in CU and CI in google and hit im feelin lucky and this came up...anyways

CU and CI mean the same thing. Just different measurements used. CU means cubic ubits. CI stnads for cubic inches. this refers to the area inside the tank that is filled so 68CI means there are 68 cubic inches in this tank. a 68cu tank has 68 68 cubic units inside the tank...basicly the same size area. This describes Nitro/compressed air tanks

Cubic unit (cu) can mean any cubic measurement. Cubic inches, feet, meters, etc. In paintball, all tanks are in cubic inches, so even if they say cu, it's measured in ci.

cu's are the solutions for cubic equations without a given unit of measure.

ci's are cubic inches (like everyone said.) that's one inch by one inch by one inch.

Though less common in the U.S., you may see cc's on a tank. That's cubic centimeters.
