  1. Just to be clear, cooking gases don't expire. Its the cylinder that does expire. Because metal rusts over time causing the mass of the alloy to slowly expand and make the gas cylinder go lighter. And when that happens, the gases will find these "expanded" holes and leak out. Hence, it is dangerous to cook with these on since its also considered as gas leaking. Good info though.

  2. Thr is D-20 written in my cylinder
    how can it be possible?
