Response to cleanest PCP air source / supply

I am partial to the N2 from the Welding Supply shop. Coming from a semiconductor fabrication background I trust bottled gas more than other sources. It will likely be cleaner and drier than other sources (and should be certified as such) since it has to be pure and dry for welding. I have 2 6K bottles and have never used air to date.
N2 will produce just a bit more power than Clean Dry Air but the amount of extra power may be imperceptible. Any time you can eliminate oxygen from the mix you also eliminate oxidation within the pressure vessel (corrosion and or rust). I shoot a lot and use about a cylinder a year. I will also say it is likely the highest price option in the long run.
