How to identify the expiry date

The expiry date of a gas cylinder is usually indicated by a code found on three strips printed on the cylinder. Here's how you can understand it:

Alphabetical indicator: The expiry month is indicated alphabetically. For example, 'A' means January to March, 'B' means April to June, 'C' means July to September, and 'D' means October to December.
