Re: [APD] transporting CO2 tanks?

I make sure my windows are rolled down too.

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.

I don't know if the pressure relief on big CO2 tanks is the same, but I've had paintball tanks blow their 2000 PSI pressure relief disc from sitting in a car on an average warm day.
