Over lots and lots of time, hidden costs of refilling the bottle will eventually meet or exceed the costs of a an initial turbo or SC setup...this is true.

How many shots would you get out of a 75hp bottle? I know you can get different sizes, but for a standard size bottle let's say. And how much does it cost to fill said bottle? I think I saw someone say like 30 bux to get your bottle filled.

One way to keep costs of bottle refilling down is to get a nitrous distributors license. The requirements differ from state to state, but it is normally just a fee. Then you can purchase the nitrous in bulk for much cheaper, if you learn how to fill the bottles, which is very simple. As far as the number of uses out of a bottle, My dad ran a Top Sportsman car in which he had a 500+ shot on it. We would get about two passes out of a 25 lbs. bottle. Based off that you should theoretically be able to get 5-6 sprays, with heating inbetween each use, out of a 15 lbs. bottle. That is assuming you are using it for drag racing on 1/4 mile passes, and aren't purging the hell out of it for show.
