Bear in mind that filling a gas that's positively buoyant is going to be
significantly different logistically than filling a negative or neutral gas.
The only reason I can think of to practice with a neutral gas would be if
you're trying to devise an airtight filler seal. Make sure your whole
filling rig can withstand like 20lbs of upward vertical force.
