No that guy isn't EPA anything, my main worry with him is the lack of history on him, he's been around for a long time but only sold swimming pools.

On the tank I would either use a stock car or pull components off a stock car to make sure all brackets and tanks follow the rules.

The pump is still where I am stuck.

There has been one in appleton for 15 or 20 years.

There will be one in greenbay in a matter of weeks (maybe a month) and one in Wausau by June.

Stratford and some other small towns are going to be getting a station here and there over the next couple of years.

At least if the news articles are to be believed.

The reason DIY NG compression is a taboo is that you will blow yourself up or or burn yourself alive one day trying to save a few pennies.

You might, I never have. If you have access to individuals that are certified with it already (or are yourself) a small amount of common sense prevents that from occuring.

There are already thousands of flammable gas compressor brands on the market buy a used H2 compressor, derate, reseal and use.

Voila.
