I've seen people tell me there are laws that say a propane tank or oxy or acetylene tank can't be transported in an enclosed vehicle, has to be upright, has to be strapped in, etc. because it's DOT law. Thing is none of the items mentioned are of enough quantity to even be in the book so the rules don't apply. I've looked and looked and it's just not there. Now, if you want to talk best practices, common sense, etc., fine, that's different. But I don't own a pickup at the moment and I'm out of acetylene and I won't pay $150.00 for the gas supply co to drop one off. So it's going in the Burb, on it's side and I will let it set overnight in an upright position before using it. Same thing for the 100 lbs propane tank I need filled. The poor guy at the hardware gets the hives when I load it, but that's his problem, not mine.

It's been my understanding for many, many years that the largest L.P. tank allowed to be carried in an enclosed vehicle is a 20 pounder. and it must be sitting upright.

I've seen guys getting 30 pounders filled and laying them down in the back of their pick up, and the guy doing the filling informing the driver that the tanks must be sitting up.
