I have been told for years it's illegal to haul them on their side, that you can't legally haul them in an enclosed vehicle, etc. I searched through the Haz Mat regs and can find nothing regarding that and all the gas companies haul the tanks in enclosed van trucks. In fact, as far as the HazMat regs go, propane/Oxy/Acetylene in the size tanks we use aren't even covered. If someone can show me where Federal law requires this, please do. There may be state law, but I haven't found it for NY yet.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

OSHA is not DOT and the other guy giving the DOT reference gave an "either or" section and that still only applies to placardable amounts of the compressed gas. I'm not arguing safety, I'm arguing the wives tales that state that DOT regs are applicable to things DOT has no authority over that regulations exist that simply don't exist. I've got no problem with using best practices, but I do have a problem when the high school drop out at the convenience store tries to tell me I can't put a 20 lbs barby tank in the back of the 'burb.

Our local welding supply co. has delivered oxy/actylene tanks in the back of stepside 3/4T PU as long as I can remember, and they still are. All the bottles lay on their sides, and the truck beds have always had wood slat frames installed to divide and protect the box.
