How long does nitrous oxide last?

How long does nitrous oxide last?

Our standard reply to this question is “not long enough”, which is the same response we’d give if someone asked us how long a petrol tank lasts. A quantifiable answer to that question is just as impossible as trying to give an answer to “how long is a piece of string?” When the system is first fitted it is likely to get used like a new a toy, so the contents of the Nitrous Oxide System cylinder are used relatively quickly. However, once the novelty has worn off and the system is used in a more practical manner, the usage rate becomes less frequent and the cylinder will need refilling less often. In everyday use and real world terms, some people can use a cylinder of nitrous oxide in an hour while others take up to 6 months. It is all down to the owner, how often the switch is flicked on and how long he keeps his foot to the floor each time. Thankfully when you run out of nitrous there is one advantage over the same situation with petrol; your car will still run normally until you get a refill
