I use to have this problem. It helps if you have an on/off, where you screw in the tank then the on/off. The only thing I can tell you is keep trying it is very hard to get them in the first few times you do it.

...don't try too hard, you might ruin your threads.

Bottom line is the only fix is an on and off =).

do u have to up grade it to use the air tank or not

Nope, no upgrades needed to use HPA. You just have to make sure you aren't cross threading the tank into the bottom line. If you've tried this several times, you may already have cross-threaded it, and then you're in for a world of hurt....

An on/off asa will make it TONS easier to screw your tank on and off your gun.

is it cheaper to fill a HPA tank then a c02 tank?

Depends where you go, soem fields give it for free with entry, others charge 2$ for 1000psi others 1$ per 1000psi, some 10$ all day air, other 5$ all day air, really depends where your getting it from.
