I need to replace the15 year old Kelvar 115.7 cu ft O2 tank in my 252.
Zodiac Aerospace (the Avox/Scott distrubutor) quoted $4500.00. I can't
belive this should cost so much, anyone know of another source?

If you call Aerox, I believe you might get a discount if you mention
Dr. Bob Achtel, according to another Mooney pilot.

Not sure what the requirements are for tank replacement - do they
require an STC/PMA?

Mountain High lists their 115 cf Kevlar tank at $1600 with no valve.

Me thinks Zodiac quoted in French francs (Zodiac (a French firm)
bought Scott from Tyco and changed its name to Avox, back in 2007).

IIRC, AC 43.13-2 serves as approved data for (among other things) O2
tank replacements. I don't recall specifics at the moment, but I think
a tank can be replaced with a suitably DOT-rated tank and the
appropriate paragraph of that AC cited on the 337.

Take a look at http://www.airportshoppe.com/aviation_oxygen/cylinders.html

They show $2772 for the 115 cu ft tank. I have no experience purchasing
from them.

Oh, I know, I wish there were. My point was it's about 5x more than it
should be...

I was just lamenting how when I was in Paris was when the Franc was
still around, a crepe from a street vendor was 5 Francs (about $1),
with filling 6-9 Francs. Now it's 5 Euros. And we complain about
inflation here...
