    I checked my one CO2 cylinder's service date tonight and saw its 2 months over the service date. Its not empty yet but I presume its needs to be serviced and refilled again. What else if any will have to be done now that it is over it's service date? :BangHead:

    Next time you fill it, they will do a pressure test, and give you a new sticker.

    Ya I would leave it till it runs out. Most of these dates they put are "safe" dates meaning you probably will still be good for another few months or years even. I wouldn't go that extreme but u know what I mean :)
