Default Word of warning : Don't Leave Full CO2 Tanks in Hot Car!

Yep, went and exchanged my C02 tank yesterday during my lunch break and left it in the backseat of my truck.

I came out after work and I knew something was strange when all the papers that were originally in my back seat were all in my front seat! That, and the tank had condensation on it, not to mention it was empty.

I took the thing back to where I had it filled thinking something was wrong with the valve. I explained the situation and they guy tells me because of the heat (it was near 80 yesterday - prolly close to 100 in the truck) the safety valve gave emptying the tank. He tells me I'm lucky I wasn't in the truck when it happened.

Anyhow, just thought I'd pass that info along...

When it is hot outside, the place I go to asks if the tank is going to left in the car for any length of time, and warn you of the dangers of doing so.

also make sure that you don't carry your tank inside the passenger compartment of your vehicle

Don't keep it in the passenger compartment of my vehicle, eh?

Hrmmm... well, I have a station wagon and a motorcycle. So I take it the motorcycle is the better option for transport then?

Strapped to your back like a Scuba tank. I am sure DOT planned for that.
