The Overfill Prevention Device or OPD is a valve inside the container that restricts the filling of the tank to approximately 80% to allow for expansion of the LP. As of January 1, 2003 all containers of LP are required to have an OPD valve. A distinctive triangle handle on DOT cylinders indicate the proper valve.
