13ci Tank Hydrotest Question

I've looked up all the threads dealing with the subject and I've had conflicting reports, and I have a couple of questions.
1. Does a 13ci tank need a hydrotest or does it fall under the 2 inch rule?
2. Are certain 13ci tanks smaller than others (I've heard that Ninjas have a larger diameter than GA?). Lighter? Better reg?
I just want to have the right information before I go out and buy something stupid.

You would need to measure it yourself, but I believe that they are the same dimensions as a 22/3000 tank, just not as long. In which case, they do fall under the 2x2 rule. Granted, some manufacturers still recommend getting them hydrotested.

As far as I know, all of the companies, like GA and Ninja, that put out a 13/3000 tank use the same tank manufacturer. So they all have the same dimensions. Of course, there are a few other sizes, like 8/3000, 22/3000, and one other that I can't think of right now.

it's always a good idea, Regardless of the tank size To have a tank inspected every 5 years. Might as well get it hydrotested as well.

This is what you are going to hear from any manufacturer for the most part when it comes to the 2x2 rule.
It doesn't qualify as a mandatory test per DOT regulations but it should be tested to ensure the integrity of the cylinder.
