The cylinder is used to fill a cars spare tire. The steel gas cylinder cannot be classified as packing material under GRI 5(b) because it is suitable for repetitive use. Therefore, each item will be classified separately.

The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the Gas Cylinder will be 7311.00.0090, HTS, which provides for Containers for compressed or liquefied gas, of iron or steel: Other. The rate of duty will be Free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
