    They look to be the old style bottles - it appears the R67 ones were launched in 2013 so these older ones could be getting on a bit and at least 5 years old (probably more).

    Gaslow R67 Bottles
    New for Summer 2013 the Gaslow R67 Bottles have been manufactured to meet French R67 Gas Tank Standards. Gaslow have always held the view that the Gaslow Bottles are considered as "Cylinders" and therefore they are manfactured to the cylinder standard EN1442:2006. Gaslow were not just alone as the UK LPGA also believed the same.

    I must admit I prefer the older ones as the knob on them is much larger and easier to turn than the new style R67 ones, also another benefit of the older versions is that they had a 15 year checking interval whereas the new style R67 type has only a 10 year checking interval - when they come to having the 'check' etc it may be that the original ones get a 15 year 'stamp' of approval ... or they may harmonise it with the 10 year newer ones ... no-one knows yet.

    The age of the pipes etc also needs to considered.

    AFAIK the maximum is 15 years so probably 2012 manufacture and sold in 2013 on launch

    These are the old style bottles, not the ones launched in 2012/13, so if they are stamped 2027 they were produced in 2012 and are probably the last of the old ones, however with the 15 year life span they are good for another 9 years; the pipe similarly should be good for another 14 years (assuming they are of a similar manufacture date).
