Default Co2 or green gas

Are there any advantages that one of these has over the other?

Green Gas - Cost less

Co2 - Cost more then Green, but hits harder

NopeGreen gas is actually more expensive than C02. Though C02 is more powerful it's not recommended in most GBBs.

Well, are we talking Green gas, or GG/Propane?

Propane is most cost efficient, CO2 is hard-hitting, and GG is for lazy people.

Co2= more pressure, which means harder hitting. Also is more convenient because it comes in 12g capsules. Co2 is my personal preference.

Propane= The cheapest and most efficient, can be bought for around $2-$3 at walmart. Requires more lubing of your gun.

Green gas= Propane with silicone oil mixed in. Don't need to lube your gun as much, but it's more expensive (around $15 a can). Also the cans are thinner than propane cans, which means they are likely to explode when exposed to a hot environment for sustained periods of time.

'nuf said.

they both have their ups and downs, but Co2 is going to be a lot more harsh on your gun

In my area, Green Gas is about $18 after tax, and I can only fire off about 1500shots off a can. I can buy 15 12g CO2 cartridges for $12. Each one allows me to fire 200-250 shots in my CO2 NBB Crosman C11. If my math is correct, that means the CO2 costs $12 for 3,750 shots, and Green Gas costs $18 for 1500 shots. If I used only my KWA USP compact I can get almost 2,000 shots off a can, but CO2 is still way cheaper.

Also, as previously mentioned, CO2 hits harder, which can be a drawback if your field has a low FPS limit.

And, if you live in a cold climate, CO2 is less subject to cooldown effect, and it will retain pressure better at cooler/cold temperatures.
