Thanks the tank states 03 95 and its aluminum and in fine looking shape. Now it may have been certified before but I have no way to tell.

So far I've been practicing fill my cornys.

If that is the most current date on the tank then you are going to need to get the tank re-tested before it gets filled again. Who ever you were planning on taking it to should know of a place to get the tank tested.

yeah the guy was going to retest mine but he said it was in good shape and wasn't that far past the expired date. so he didn't charge to retest. he just swapped me a new one.

I called a few places and they all swap. One place will fill but even without certification it would take 1-2 weeks.

with the age of it, swapping would prolly be the best. then you get a newer one.

Wow. That's just greasy. Certifying the tank is not to protect the company that fills it. It's to protect you from a catastrophic failure of the bottle. Tanks go bad. Not CO2.

Tanks expand and contract under the pressure of the gas, over time this can weaken the walls. They do fail occasionally.
