    If it's empty then there is no issue there but will it remain empty???

    As soon as you fill it and start using it then it will become a hazard.

    Whilst it's empty do not plumb it in because if you were to get pulled then you have no way of proving to the very kind and understanding police officer that you do not use it and it never gets filled

    Problem is even with a technically empty container you still get BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosions, where the bottle cools faster than the gas does.....) problems should you be involved in an accident. I believe if the bottles there you need the sticker, I may be wrong but the vehicle that carries our bottles for refilling (they get taken there and left then the ambulance crew picks them up as needed IIRC) has a sticker etc.

    Nos is legal for road use, so thats fine, as long as you have declared it to your insurers, had it installed properly and arn't being a burke with it.....

    TBH on an M3 engine (or any German engine), I don't think the tolerances are good enough personally, on a Jap car revving 7500-8000 rpm yeah, but I think a turbo/SC is the better safer way to go....

    Also would you be going for speed/gearing activated or switch?

    Sticker is Green with "Compressed Gas" on it, for my lot it's oxygen and NOS That's fun stuff to breathe Big light headed feeling, just like pure oxygen.....

    http://www.e-scuba.co.uk/acatalog/Ge...cessories.html

    I have asked a friend and he says he's unclear on the law regarding signage of unfilled bottles, he said if it's never been filled it's possibly ok, but he would not take the chance as ANY liquid/vapour left in it constitutes a danger of explosion.....

    Fire extinguishers don't apply I think as the cannister contained within is too small.
