    No one is going to NAB you as far as I know.

    However, you'll do a search on "certification" on tanks, and from what I read there is no such thing as re-certification for tanks. Once is a tank is expired it is to be discarded and replaced. From what I understood we may see the tank expiration as a part of requirment when inspection/emissions are due.

    Those tanks have an expiration for a reason; they certainly undergo a signifigant amount of stress over years from constant depressurization and pressurization. I've heard that tanks can eventually explode when the metal has signifigantly reduced in strength (hence the expiration).

    I know I'm not pushing my luck, I don't want to die!
