    I am also looking for a refill shop around Rockford Illinois
    I found a place in Sterling that fills them but it costs $50 no matter what size.

    Are there any drawbacks to using welding shop sourced nitrous?? I assume its the same stuff, but who knows.

    nope just tell them its for a car. I have used welding shop nitrous a few times when I was out and couldnt find a good speed shop. I think the only difference is the method to fill the bottle.

    Any idea what they charge for a 10# bottle? That and they're 1hr+ from my house

    Here's their info:
    4425 Charles St, Rockford, IL 61108 (Hot Rod Shop Ltd)
    (815) 227-5424

    $36 to fill a totally empty 10# bottle! Not too shabby!
