  • 3600 psi tank stickered at 3000 psi, how do I resticker

    I have a tank for my truck that is stamped by the mfr. up at the neck with the pressure rating of 249 kPa (3600 psi) along with the expiration date yet the label placed on the tank by the installer says don't fill to more than 3000 psi. Is there a legal method to resticker the tank and get a new filler fitting so I can fill this tank to 3600 psi? It's a 10gge at 3600 but naturally I can only put in 8gge at the most.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    If you know who the installer was, then maybe you could just ask him why he put the 3,000 psi sticker on. It could be that the rest of the system is only rated for 3,000 psi (i.e. fuel lines, regulators, etc.) By the way, 249 kpa is only 36 psi. I think you mean 24.9 MPa

      The recpt. on the tank is either a P30 or P36 a P36 nozzle will NOT fit on a 3000PSI syestem

        As an installer myself I can see only two reasons another installer would do such a thing. Legal reasons, installer may be unsure and playing on the safe side, or what makes more sense is the a 3000 psi kit was installed on the vehicle.
