I've been searching everywhere for this info. Hell, i think this is the first time even GOOGLE has failed me.
Can anyone tell me the tare weight of an empty 30# R-12 cylinder?
2 friends and I split the cost for one back in 1992 when it was only $8/lb. I tried recharging up my car (and failed thanks to a ****ty manifold set), and gave up. One of my buddies has used it a couple times (I think successfully). Other than that, it's been sitting in my basement ever since and now I'd love to sell it. I'm sure there's 80-90% left, as it still is almost as heavy as it was when I got it. But I can't give an exact amount/weight for pricing without knowing the tare weight.
Just how much is R-12 nowadays? The guys that fixed my furnace fan today said $100/lb.
It is just your average cylinder similar to a propane BBQ tank. I think it is a Cool-Shot brand or something like that.
