Gary, you don't say how long you have had the plants.  If they have
been in your tank for a few months, and are happy, I wouldn't add
lights. I'd buy myself dinner instead. :-)

I appreciate your warning about the possibility of the CO2 cylinder

One thing to note, though. Here in North Carolina, welding supply
companies will not let you put a CO2 cylinder in the trunk.  If you
get rear-ended, the cylinder could explode.  It's safer to keep the
cylinder inside the car and make sure it does not get too hot.
