 hi,  I  got  a  ista  2L  co2  cylinder.  The  problem  is  that  I  am  not  able  to  fill  the  cylinder  here  in  pondicherry  because  the  nozzles  at  the  filling  stations  donot  fit  the  cylinder.  The  people  at  filling  station  here  usually  fill  the  cylinders  in  chennai  but  there  also  the  same  problem  occurred.  The  LFS  guy  here  told  me  that  there  should  be  some  kind  of  adaptor  to  overcome  this  problem.  Can  someone  help  me  please.  Its  been  one  month  since  i  setup  the  tank  and  struggling  to  fill  the  CO2.  The  cylinder  was  bought  from  Indiapetstore.
 
 I  have  attached  the  picture  of  the  cylinder!

 @Vasigar,
 
 You  will  need  to  make  an  adapter  for  refilling.  You  can  get  this  made  at  a  turner's  shop.  There  is  a  3/4th  inch  nut  which  is  made  and  fits  on  your  cylinder.  This  nut  has  a  small  copper  pipe  with  another  nut  at  the  other  end,  which  is  of  the  size  of  your  refillers  cylinder.  It  will  cost  you  roughly  3XX  for  making  this,  but  you  can  then  get  it  refilled  at  any  CO2  refiller.
 
 There  is  a  small  washer  in  your  cylinder  where  this  nut  fits  and  you  have  to  make  sure  that  it  doesn't  get  damaged  while  doing  this  or  you  may  have  gas  leaking  problems  in  the  future
 
 
 Regards
 
 Sandeep

 I  too  was  interested  in  buying  this  cylinder  but  had  doubts  where  it  could  be  refilled  because  of  the  same  problem  you  as  facing  now.
 
 You  could  talk  with  Vikram  (who  I  understand,  is  the  main  guy  running  the  CO2  supply  chain  in  BLR).  His  number  is  9845224111.  Not  sure  if  he  will  be  able  to  solve  your  problem  but  could  point  you  towards  the  right  direction.
 
 Also,  as  Shelly  suggested,  seek  out  Nirav's  assistance.

 Hi,
 
 Well  the  nut  is  the  same  as  any  standard  Co2  Cylinder  NUT,  so  what  your  local  filling  station  nut  is,  will  be  the  same  on  this  one.  Else  how  can  any  standard  Co2  regulator  fit  on  this  cylinder.  Usually  since  they  have  not  seen  anything  fancy  like  this  before  they  are  reluctant,  you  just  need  to  pursue  them.  Tell  him  to  fill  about  1Kg  for  you  and  try.  That  will  build  his  confidence,  if  its  a  boy  may  be  you  can  just  give  him  a  little  tip.  Thats  what  we  did  initially  and  then  now  the  filler  is  confident.  Also  this  cylinder  can  be  filled  via  Refillers  who  do  Co2  cylinder  to  Cylinder  Filling.  Try  to  find  a  person  who  would  do  that.  They  will  do  it  without  any  fuss.
 
 Had  you  been  here  in  NCR  we  would  have  helped  you  out.
 
 Warm  Regards
 Nirav  Shah
