150 psi lets you air up your tires faster (More pressure) also able to better run air tools (more pressure). I had to cut a 1 inch (1/8 thick) piece of metal in my garage last weekend with a cut tool (Grinder) and I used the CO2 bottle rather than firing up the air compressor.

Ken,
Where do you have your 10lb tanks filled for $9 or is it a secret?

General Air and Supply charges me $16 for a 20# bottle exchange. First bottle was free as it came from Kipper who stole it off a Pepsi truck. Not true but the bottle I did get from Kip was Pepsi owned.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I have a commercial account at Gen Air.

There are many reasons I do not like CO2 for filling tires but Ken touches on the biggest reason. I have a problem carrying a large supply of a heavy gas inside my vehicle that can replace all O2 in the cabin many times over with an enviornment that humans cannot live in. I do carry CO2 in my 80 when on trail rides only but when I can get some time I will figure out a place to install a belt driven compressor and the CO2 will end up on the trailer.

What do I look for in a regulator? I found a regulator on ebay that shows CO2 level and adjustable outlet pressure. Will this do the job or should I look for other features or gauge ranges etc? Here is the link:
