What is involved in testing an LPG tank?

Re-certification is a detailed process and entails:

  • Checking the tank date on the actual tank/s
  • Checking the emission
  • Run and empty gas lines
  • Remove gas tank fittings
  • Carry out external inspection
  • Remove all liquid and vapor from gas tank/s
  • Remove tank with nitrogen
  • Remove and test valves and fittings
  • Inspect tank/s internally
  • Test and replace valves & seals
  • Pressure test tank/s
  • Leak check tank/s
  • Date stamp tank/s
  • Leak test connections & fittings using a small amount of LPG
  • Compliance certificate is issued

Are your LPG (gas) tank/s over 10 years old?

By Australian standards, if your LPG (gas) system is over 10 years old, the tank/s need to be re-certified.
For example, if the LPG (gas) system was installed in 2014,
the tank/s will need to be tested in 2024.

How can i find out if tanks are tested?

The best way to find out is on the LPG tank itself it will have a LPG compliance plate with the last test date details.

Otherwise all LPG fitted vehicles have a LPG Compliance plate in the engine bay area where there is a re-test/tank test date.

It’s important to note that testing isn’t just about compliance, but also about making sure that you and your family are safe.
