How to check if your gas bottle is out of date?March 22, 2019
It’s important to check if your gas bottle is out of date. In Australia it is illegal and incredibly dangerous to refill an out of date gas bottle.
- Pick up the bottle and look at the collar around the top
- Rotate around until you see stamped numbers (sometimes difficult to read)
- You will find a month and year stamp. This is your 10 year start date. e.g 10/09 represent October 2009, this will expire in October 2019.
- If this is older than ten years your gas bottle is out of date.
If your gas bottle is out of date DO NOT REFILL IT. This is for the safety of you, your family or anyone else in the vicinity of your gas bottle when in use. Gas bottles can be tested and re-stamped once deemed safe after inspection.
