So if you are transporting medical oxygen on a vehicle, we would recommend just displaying the compressed gas sign, which is a green diamond sticker, 100 ml x 100 ml, we would not recommend having that sticker on it if you are not carrying any cylinders. So we supply magnets that can be easily attached to the vehicle and detached whether or not you are carrying a cylinder, the reason we say not to leave the signage on the vehicle, if there is no cylinders on board, is because if there is an accident, the fire brigade and emergency services will be working as though there were cylinders on board, so it can be ambiguous. So a 1,000 litres water capacity is working on the size of the cylinders, so the cylinders are measured in water capacity, so a two-litre cylinder, if you imagine it without a regulator on the top and you were to fill it up with water, that would hold two litres, so that is when it is not compressed, so you would just scale that up to a 1,000 litres basically. So if you are working on, our largest cylinders, which are 40 litres cylinders, you could carry 25 of those on your vehicle before you start getting into the realms of ADR.
