How does nitrous bottle pressure affect my performance?

How does nitrous bottle pressure affect my performance?

Achieving optimum performance from a Nitrous Oxide System, relies on both the fuel and nitrous being delivered through the nitrous system, in such a way as to maintain a constant mixture ratio and this is best achieved by trying to maintain the delivery pressures of both at constant levels. The jet sizes provided with the nitrous system will only produce optimum results if both fuel and nitrous is delivered at the pressures the jets are intended to work at. Unfortunately nitrous bottle pressure depends on the ambient temperature and the consumption rate that the nitrous is used at. A low ambient temperature will result in a low bottle pressure and high nitrous consumption (larger jet/s) will cause the bottle pressure to fall more rapidly than low consumption (smaller jets). With the above in mind it is essential to hold the bottle as close to the right ambient temperature as possible, so that the jet/s deliver the correct amount of nitrous from initiation to end of use. Adding a bottle heater is a good method of achieving the optimum pressure and maintaining it at that pressure, while the system is in use.
