If you mean it's now come to the final date, and that you had it tested 3 years ago then you don't gain the 'spare' two years

The final date is the expiry irrespective of when it was last tested



Note that the point that only you will fill it is irrelevant - it's not legal to be filled after expiry, you're the person liable when filling anyway

If it's been over 15 years from the original hydro date that is on the bottle, then it's. I longer legal to use. Even if you have a fresh re-hydro from a year ago.

You most likely can get it re hydrod.
No - the final date is the final date

A fibre cylinder has a 15 year maximum life, with hydro tests at 5 year intervals
You can hydro test at other times but it does not affect the final date

If a test centre accepted an expired cylinder and tested it then you have just paid a test fee to have people like me take one look and prevent you from filling or using the cylinder
