ninja tank hold

How much can a 68/4500 hold? 4500 im guessing, but on the manual it said only fill to 2000-3000. Need more shots instead of constantly refilling

If its a 4500 psi tank with a 4500 psi reg then it can hold 4500 psi...

check that your regulator says, then look as what your tank is rated for. Use the lowest of the two numbers.

Sounds like you're either reading the manual wrong or you got the wrong manual with your tank

A x psi tank is usually built to withstand 2 to 3 times x psi. But don't fill it past the x rating for safety reasons.

So ya, go ahead and fill that 4500 to 4500 and don't worry.

You'll be fine, and you will most likely get between 1000 and 1400 shots off a 68/4500 tank.

Just cause the tank is rated to be filled at 4500psi doesn't mean the reg is.

If you have a 3000psi reg on a 4500psi tank, you can only fill to the lowest amount and visa versa.

No...

I get well over a 2000 shots on my 68/45. It all depends on the marker you're using.

As long as both the Reg and Tank are regulated for 4500psi then yes you can use the 4500psi fill station all the way.
