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.

Thats why Dave said you need a needle valve on each line ;)

i take it i mount it after the splitter, so i have co2 line A, split that into tow to form A and B. then, this goes on line B.?

can i still control line A from the reg and soleniod on the FE?

thats a massive help aaron, cheers. i must have been going mad, i tried like 6 diff searches!

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.
