Air dosent weigh anything. If you left the shop with you bottle weighing 25lbs, then you did get 10 lbs of nitrous.

What can happen if you stop getting liquid nitrousw after 7 lbs, is that your draw tube is most likely not positioned correctly, or maybe your bottle isn't mounted in the correct orientation in the car. Then the liquid nitrous boils, and yoiu draw vapor for the last 3 lbs.

Also, even when the draw tube is set up perfect, you never can really get 10 lbs out, usually 9 or so. So its important to find a fill station that charges by the lb, so if you only need 9, then you only pay for 9.
Hpoe that helps.

Find a new filling station. I doubt you will, but if you still have any problem we can go from there.

I got a bottle the other day the that weighed out at the 25 lbs, but it was still crap. I tried to spray off the line and it would hit and then let off and then it would pulse all the way down the track. I picked up almost four tenths a second by changing to a bottle that had been filled somewhere else.

I had been running the tires at 22 pounds with the old bottle. The new bottle hit so hard that I had to drop the mt's down to 14 pounds and burnout in vht to hook.

Even if the bottle weighs 25 pounds you can still get a crappy fill.

10lbs of nitrous is 10 lbs of nitrous. The key here is you switched bottles.(to a bottle with a properly installed draw tube)

Empty your bottle and inspect your draw tube. I've even seen them get bent from being dropped in shipping, its pretty common.

You may be having bottle issues...or other issues for that matter.
