I would agree with respect to mixes > 40%. Over 40% I would disagree..

And I would emphasis that to the extent you are going to comingle tanks you need to pay particular attention to analysis..

For example, in my case I have approx 30 tanks in my garage, if I were to undertake a practice of not properly marking my tanks this could result in unintended consequences. Moreover, I lend out a fair amount of gear so if someone were to grab a tank with EANx in it and not analyze it, absent proper markings, this could be a problem.

But in terms of owning one tanks and using it for gases > 40% I could live with that..

I would also add that if you are partial pressure blending ( granted the boats are using a DNAx system )it might cause me a little more concern..
