Where can I find the date on my tank?

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) prohibits the transportation of tanks older than 12 years. Look for a date stamp on or near the collar of the tank. The date (month & year of re-qualification inspection) is usually stamped on the edge of the tank collar.

Tanks without unacceptable defects are good for up to 12 years from date of manufacture. A visual re-qualification is good for 5-years, assuming no defect occurs that would render that tank unacceptable subsequent to the re-qualification inspection.

Blue Rhino requalifies tanks as part of its process, so you don’t have to worry about taking care of that requirement on your own.
