Very important information.

Most of us do not know this.

Do you know that there is an expiry date (physical life) for LPG cylinders?
Expired Cylinders are not safe for use and may cause accidents. In this regard please be cautious at the time of accepting any LPG cylinder from the vendor.

Here is how we can check the expiry of LPG cylinders:
On one of three side stems of the cylinder, the expiry date is coded alpha numerically as follows A or B or C or D and some two digit number following this e.g. D06.

The alphabets stand for quarters -
A for March (First Qtr),
B for June (Second Qtr),
C for Sept (Third Qtr), &
D for December (FourthQtr).

The digits stand for the year till it is valid. Hence D06 would mean December qtr of 2006. Share this message with everyone you know, UR kind co-operation

--------------------------------------------------------------------

What is meant by a physical life of LPG cylinder here? Is there any other life to LPG cylinder? Are you talking about the expiry date of gas inside the cylinder or the cylinder itself? Is there any limit to the number of times a cylinder can be used for this purpose and what is the period upto which we can keep the cylinder stored with us without using it.

Does the LPG cylinder that we use for cooking is same as that we use as the fuel for vehicles and are these expiry dates applicable there too?

..........
thanks.

Well I don’t know all the details you asked.

The expiry date means they recommend you to utilize LPG cylinder before the expiry date.

It is apply to LPG cylinder as a whole.

It is illegal to use LPG cylinder for cooking as fuel for vehicles.

There are many taxis/rickshaws running on CNG(Compressed Natural Gas).We can see similar LPG cylinder in them.But is that LPG ?
LPG used for household is in liquid state.It is compressed to upto 270 times.Means 1 cc multiplies to 270 cc while coming out in gaseous state.
