    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for welded carbon steel LP gas fuel vessels of total internal volume not greater than 500 L, and for welded stainless steel LP Gas Fuel vessels of total internal volume not greater than 200 L, intended for automotive installations.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for welded carbon steel LP Gas fuel vessels of total internal volume not greater than 500 L, and for welded stainless steel LP Gas fuel vessels of total internal volume not greater than 200 L, intended for automotive installations. Appendix A is intended for suppliers of ‘valved-up’ vessels for use by an installer without pre-installation tests. NOTES: 1 AS/NZS 1425 (for use in Australia) and NZS 5422.1 (for use in New Zealand) specify requirements for the installation of LP Gas fuel vessels for vehicles. 2 Users of this Standard are reminded that it has no legal authority in its own right, but acquires legal standing when adopted by government or an authority having jurisdiction, or if specified as part of a commercial contract.
