10 year old 30# tanks

So, my tanks are now 10 years old.

Will I have trouble getting them refilled?

Anyone get their tanks recertified?

Love to hear about it.

I believe they are 12 year cert but I'm sure somebody will have a definitive answer on that.

A few years ago, the US government dropped it to 10; then I heard that recently that was removed as part of regulation reduction.

Now, I have no clue what the rule is.

If you travel to Canada, it is 10 years.

If you want to keep them take them to a real propane distributor, they can re-certify them. I would check the price first because it may almost as cheap to buy new ones.

Just make a couple of grills out of the old ones!

They would be pretty small grills ...

Ameri-Gas web site

https://www.amerigas.com/amerigas-bl...r-propane-tank

All grill cylinders require recertification 12 years from the date it was manufactured, and every 5 years after that.

So what do you do when it’s time to recertify your tank? Just follow the quick and easy steps below, and you’ll be grilling (safely) in no time!

Visit www.amerigas.com/propane-locations and enter your zip code to find the nearest AmeriGas location.

I will call them and let you know what they say.

I had called a local Propane dealer and they would recertify 30 pounders for 10.00.

I generally just go to a place that does tank exchanges. Give them your old one and get a newer filled one in return.
