Thread Sealant

How come my guerrilla air tank lose air after i have fill it to 2500psi?

It it normal for it to lose air? Does it have to be in a certain temperture to not lose air its hpa and its aluminum. I got it like 4 months ago and has some scratches

When does it lose air? Do you fill it, then later you notice the psi has gone down? Or does it leak immediately after filling it?

If you notice the decrease over time, then the tank simply cooled down, thus the pressure inside was reduced. With some fills, the air rushes in too fast and heats up, causing a higher pressure reading. This is called a "flash fill."

If it's happening immediately, the fill nipple on the tank's regulator needs a rebuild. It's a fairly simple piece, in that there's a rod inside the fill nipple, with an o-ring on it. O-ring would need replacing. I don't recommend you do it yourself, but you could. Just a matter of making sure the tank is empty, unscrewing the fill nipple, replacing the o-ring on the rod inside, then screwing the nipple back on with thread sealant.
