My gas supplier doesn't even mention it when I load and unload cylinders for exchange, either.
    Here in Houston I see lots of O2 cylinders being transported horizontally, both with and without regulators attached.

    I keep tanks in my service truck in an enclosed box. I use a 80 from my pickup like it is. I cap the 80 and leave regs on in the box. The welder is covered and the face of it is thru the back of the box and can actually fit 4 torch bottles.

    Hellinois also has a hard on for commercial vehicles, and others of such. It is not uncommon for a state trooper to write a BS citation. Theory is, most will just pay it instead of missing a day's pay. Sounds unbelievable, but they are so broke they are extorting $$$ any way they can.

    ZERO respect for state popo!
