    You will also require a needle valve in line with each branch, too.

    how do i determine how much co2 goes to each tank? as one tank is 120l and the other 40L so they will need different amounts of co2 surely? so one setting wont do all so to speak.

    I've one of these to split my CO2 between two tanks and it works brilliantly. Allows me total control over the CO2 in both.

    i dont have ahuge budget really, i want to spend no more than about £20 on the needle valve and the splitter, and if i get the splitter from AE and needle valve from ebay that wroks out at about £20 by the time postage is factored in.
