Default 3 or 5 yr Hydro?

Ok..I have a 68/4500 Java(Carleton) tank and on the label it says:

"Retest every 5 years per US DOT CFFC & E11194" and
"Retest every 3 years per TC-SU 5303"

The tank has both of those codes on it, the label reads:

DOT-E11194 4500PSI M4927

TC-SU5303 310 BAR

6151-71135 REE 01-CL-02
15.4cc
So is it a % or 3 year hydro tank?

Im tired and confused right now, and plan on playing saturday. So if any one could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Absolutely not true........alot of CF tanks are 5 year! It says US retest every 5 and Canada every 3 years.

Yeah.....but only one says US
All you asked is which one is it and that's all you asked for. The rest of that crap can get confusing.......especially since the page he transferred you to is only identical to a small percentage of tanks. I fill air at our field most of the time and inspect them.

In fact to make it entirely more confusing.......some tanks straight up say 3 year tank and become 5 year after the first hydro.
