"If the tanks are simply being VIPed, I fully agree that nitrox stickers on them shouldn't matter. In fact, the statndard for VIPs is for ALL stickers (inclduing old VIP stickers) to be removed before a VIP is started so you can check for external corrosion under the stickers. And since, durting the VIP process, the open tank is exposed to 1-atm air, it obviously can't contain any nitrox when the valve is off. VIP can be done, tank filled with air, returned to customer."

Exactly, Thank you. One tank just had an old piece of masking tape on it that said .32!

Nitrox is becoming more available. Membrane systems aren't requiring Nitrox only tanks. It is reality.
