Re: [APD] transporting CO2 tanks?
If you carry it in a car, better the trunk than passenger
compartment. A rapid leak from the tank could fill the car
with condensing water vapor making vision difficult.
The regulations for compressed gas tanks generally come
under DOT. Local regs can be diff; usually are.
If someone had a compressed gas tank in a parked car in the
daylight, that's very injudicious. Car's can get very hot
and although CO2 tanks do not get filled anywhere near
their tested pressure capacity, storage in parked car (even
short term) is beyond the recommend proper use.
