The O2D2 is key. I didn't want to spend the $$$, weight or panel space for the full on built in system. So I made a hybrid system. I plummed the plane for O2 with a remote regulator switch on my panel. I have one 02D2 in my center console (I can add a second, but for now, I have yet to have the need since the chances of me going a long high CC with 4 people are slim). I mounted the 647 bottle in the baggage compartment. I can get it out in about 20 seconds to do a refill. I had the bottle refilled last year at OSH and we have flown on about 6 long cross countries using the O2 and still have plenty in the tank. It's all about the O2D2.
I made a little pouch for the Regulator to store in. When I really need to save weight, I can pull the bottle. (Like when I had 3 navy seals in the plane on a flight out to the desert....)
