Tank Fills

Just following on from the tank testing thread, how much do you pay for your fills and what pressure do you expect for your money?
I get most of my fills (other than nitrox) a couple of minutes away from work, and always get at least 225 bar for my $6. Consequently I always feel a bit short changed when I get 200 bar fills elsewhere. Assuming I complete a dive with 50 bar left, I have had about 15% more diving starting with 225 than I would have starting with 200 bar. I guess the last 25 bar is the hardest/longest to fill.

I get 232 bar every time.
I pay nothing per fill, but I do need to pay for petrol, filters and 3 month air inspections.

Before that I paid $6 per twin tank fill and always got 220 bar+ minimum. That was way cheaper but I did have to cart my tanks around.
