Well, if your buying a gas bottle from GAS IT then R67 and its rules and regulations don't apply to you as your just fitting a GAS IT gas bottle that's approved to the same specification as your current exchange type gas bottle, but ours are just refillable by you and not the company you exchange them with. So simply put even though we stock R67 certified gas cylinders, and have done for over 20 years, we just won't sell R67 gas bottles to you and we only sell them to OEM's who can satisfy the R67 regulation install needs when building our GAS IT R67 gas bottles into their new vehicles. It's no safer or even worse than your normal gas bottle it's just how the seller of the gas bottle or gas cylinders gets its product certified at the point of manufacture. The major difference is that if you certify your gas cylinder R67 then you have to carry out the installation and fitment to the R67 regulations dictate. So how does buying a R67 gas cylinder affect you?

The outside filling unit is connected to the container by a hose or pipe. The device to verify the level of liquid in the container shall be of an indirect type for example magnetic between the inside and outside of the container. Provisions regarding the remotely controlled service valve with excess flow valve.
The service valve shall not, at the shut-off position, allow an internal leak rate in the flow direction. There may be leak in the back flow direction. The excess flow valve shall be designed with a bypass to allow for equalization of pressures. Every modification of a type of LPG equipment shall be notified to the administrative department which granted the type approval. The department may then either:. The competent authority issuing the extension of approval shall assign a series number to each communication form drawn up for such an extension.
