good question, sadly I cant answer it. Although I have a booster and several 250g argon tanks I use to fill mine, but can relate to argon in a drysuit, oh yea, good voodoo gas.

Hoodsport-N-Dive, both the Tumwater and the Hoodsport stores can fill your Argon tank.

If you're using the little 6cf tanks, try the 13cf tanks and get double the dives out of one fill (thats what I do).
