Great idea.

If you lads want to add your local guy to this list, that would be good.

Stoney Cove are ok to get a fill from.

But NEVER EVER get your bottles tested there.

They will almost always fail and then they always have a large supply of second hand bottles :wtf: :wtf: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

They have been pulling that scam for years and years.

The truth is at lest six local lads i know plus myself have had bottles fail a test and then offered a secondhand bottle all of them in the space of 12 months and then the word got around and it turn out they were failing almost every bottle they were testing at the time.

to be honest ,I went there with a bottle and no test on it, they were very cool with me and swopped it over for one they had only charging me the cost of the test, so I think they are ok,

Unfortunately...
Oxford Dive Centre.
Abingdon Road

At £4.50 for up to 200 bar and £9 for 300 bar, it just too expensive. :thumbdown:

No other local filling stations.
