I have a very simple question, with a very complicated answer. I think, perhaps the answer is just as simple.
I was filling tanks this last weekend, when once again I could find the amount that I was to fill the tank to. So I looked at the valve. It was rated for 2400psi. So here is the question. Can you over fill the valve? What is the safety margin of the valve, if any? If you can not over fill a valve all + signs are useless, aren't they?
