If the tank has any sign of rust it is highly recommended ( it will have unless you spray it clean it and undercoat it every year.) . To be fair the cost or replacing the piping including all the filler pipes and fittings is only about £100 less than changing the complete lot and that way you get new gauges all through, including the one on the dash.
is this written anywhere in AS handbooks, can't say I've ever seen this?. Have you a link to such regulation.

This is taken from Gasit web site....

Under current UK & EU law, privately owned end-user owned refillable gas bottles or gas tanks do not need to be legally tested every 10 years as normal gas bottles issued by the big commercial companies do but to be safer than sorry we would always recommend that they are checked and inspected, even if that is just by a GAS IT trained engineer who can check the physical look and condition of the tank/bottle and its valves functionality.

Autogas 2000 have been in Thirsk for many years, checking Vangas website the address is the same, so just a change of name. As Autogas 2000 they are well respected, which Gromit will confirm. Lpg gas pump there as well.
Gromit certainly will Paul.  up!

Chris Wise is one of the best dealers we have used for any purpose.

Dead straight and completely trustworthy.

If Chris is still in charge I would not hesitate to get his advice, and act upon it.

How much does the gas tank need replacing just based on it's age versus needing to replace the tank because of rust?
Could proper rust proofing of the tank and pipework prevent the need to have a replacement tank fitted at say around 10 years?

I've know butane rubber hoses have a replace by date on them, similarly tyres also seem to require replacing based less by their condition more by their date of manufacture.
