Yes, they might be DOT-approved now, with all the proper stamps. RAP4 is profitable enough now that I'm sure they want to avoid any liability problems. But that does not make them pre-DOT ones any more legal to fill/transport.
Oh I know! I wasn't saying they were approved, the quality has gone way up thankfully. The old ones were like timebombs, especially when it came to the markers they were sold with...

Nope. I wouldn't want to fill one. The new ones are a little longer and do.
