Right, I get what you're saying about tanks in your state, but in mine it is 10 years.
Most people here chuck em after expired, as it's a royal pain to get an old tank re-certed in NH.
But what I was looking for in quoting you originally was what, if any, is the penalty for having an "expired" tank in a state with 5 yr. re-certs vs another state with 10 years interval IF
god forbid something catastrophic happened on the 10 year tank in a 5 year state...
