I really want to note that I'm happy there's friendly people here. This is a pretty nice community. I'm part of a motorcycle forum and it is pretty sad how badly new riders get harped on when asking something novice. I'm happy that's not going on here.
Were always here to help
Unless of course your in small talk.
About your tanks... Fill them as slow as possible. Then they'll only drop 100-300 psi per fill.
