    On the show hank says that tanks out in the heat off gas through pressure relief cause they get weak[​IMG].The liquid is a refrigerant because it weighs 4.2 lb at 60f and expands at 1.5% per 10 f.Has anyone smelled their tank off gassing on a hot day?

    I have noticed the gauge on my tank will go up in pressure when the sun hits it.
