That's because there are no regulations requiring tank test certificates on automotive LPG tanks. This is probably due to the people writing the regs being the type that wouldn't be seen dead in a car over 3 years old, and assuming that all cars would be scrapped by 10-15 years old.

LPG tanks for heating and cooking on the other hand are subject to different regulations, as their regs were written by people with half a clue.

Removal for use on anything not a V40 could be done, but why? More work and effort than it's ever worth. Used LPG kit is worth not very much.

But... if you're prepared to wait for yoru money, the Necam parts, namely the vapouriser and dizzy should see 100 on eBay. If you were nearer, I'd take the lot.
