RE: nitrous in your car?

The N2O in the tank is under sufficient pressure to keep the N2O (most of
it) liquid in the tank at ambient temperatures.  Heating the tank will
increase the equilibrium vapor pressure of the liquid N2O and will allow
the tank to provide more N2O (at a higher pressure and therfore higher flow
rate) through a specific induction system than will the same setup without
the heat.  This makes sense for increasing the N2O shot but it also
definitely increases the potential hazard inherent in any compressed gas
