Marked "AIR" or w/a sticker like below should suffice.

Oxy/Oxygen is green next to Acetylene for welding and cutting. I think he converted one tank or the other for large capacity compressed air tank and want's the correct DOT identification for the air tank. Does this help?

Ayuh,... I've got 3 portable air tanks that are Red...

Oxy/ Ac tanks vary by suppliers...

For liquid containers, Red is gasoline, Blue is kerosene, 'n Yellow is fuel oil, or diesel fuel, which is 1 in the same, Anyways....

That takes care of this question as usual thanks all for your time bob s
PS Color don't matter as long as one knows its Air instead of picking up a "dangerous tank"of something else by accident. this brings to mind ,kids teenagers etc.
