Completely unsafe to fill the tank to 4500 psi that's only meant to hold 3000 psi. Never fill your tank above the pressure rating. You MUST check what pressure line you are on every single time and watch your tank gauge to ensure you are not going above your fill pressure rating.
It stresses the cylinder body and there is no way to ensure there is not a 'soft spot' somewhere that won't rupture on you. You never know when you have a cylinder that doesn't quite meet the pressure recommendations in terms of burst pressure.
They're meant to be safely operated at 3000 psi or 4500 psi only. Never above. If they are ever over filled proper protocol is to take the tank out of service and get it hydro tested as the cylinder could have stretched out to unsafe specifications per the REE number.
