    I'm specifically commenting on Faber 95s. PST 95s may not be an issue. Faber made light tanks. Yes, there is that much of a difference in the weight of the gas. I used my Faber 95s with trimix in them once. I was fighting to stay at depth for most of my 20ft stop. And the pressure was no lower than it normally is after a nitrox dive.

    Other than being really heavy cylinders, they should be okay.
