    As long as it's closed tight, it will last... I got a third spare over a year old now, still full. Mainly, try not to get it to hot. It does have a blow off safety on it... You have to weigh it, to see how much is left.

    yeah I am a dive instructor so I know about preassure and temp. I just am new to the whole nitrous thing, I have only used it once and that was on my buddys gxsr1000. Still didint beat him. But he has a bottle also. My other question is....I have a 150shot, when is the best time to use it on a 1/4 mile track?

    I have an arming switch, then the WOT switch takes over from there ! So, basicaly, the whole 1/4 mile. I did add a digaset box ( time delay ) in line, to delay it off the line if there's traction issues. Like .3 - .4 of a second...

    Well you get the most gain from the initial start. I spray ALL my cars including customers right out of the gate. If tuned correctly you have nothing to worry about.

    Bottle shelf life. . . . . . . . . . . As long as it holds the pressure.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
