Gas cylinder expiry date

In Malaysia, gas cylinders are widely used in homes or even in restaurants & cafes. For me, I have 2 units at home, one as a back-up in case the other runs empty and the delivery man is unable to deliver on time to top up my supply.

Recently, someone told me that these cylinders have an expiry date and we should all learn how to read them.

They are usually coded in A, B, C or D and followed by 2 digits. Meaning if its coded A10, meaning it should expire in the first quarter of 2010. If it reads D13, it should expire in the 4th quarter of 2013.

Another hoax? Cant see any labels in my cylinders at home leh ...
