Compressed Gas (air)


Recommended Posts

I was chatting to a friend of mine, who told me that his brother, a keen airgun shooter, was stopped by police on a routine check. He informed the officer that he had an air rifle (PCP) in the boot of his car, and duly showed this to the officer. He also had a 3ltr air cylinder in there as well. The police officer was okay but did mention that there should be a 'Compresses Gas 2' sign on the back window. Personally, I don't know if this is law, or something the officer just 'made up'.

A quick google appears to indicate that only applies to commercial vehicles.

As I drive a pick up, I bought a magnetic one up for a few pounds off ebay and slap it on the back of my truck when I've got my 5l tank with me.  Sorted.

I've got two bottles, a 7ltr and a new 3 ltr composite one, which I will take with me when going to the farm etc. Although I drive a non commercial vehicle, I'm thinking of sticking a sign on the back window anyway.

I suppose I should also have a flag flying saying I have upwards of 80 ltrs of LPG then.  Joking apart it is not a bnad idea because if involved in an accident then any firebrigade members will know what to expect.

That's what I was thinking.

I've often thought I should have one, but the boot and back windows are all tinted. 

And I'm sure the fuel tank is enough to make them cautious,  but I also very rarely have the bottle in the car, just the rifle.
