Just picked up a used, 2015 Volt and I notice that the clear hose on the tire inflator has residue in it that makes me believe the sealant was used at some time. I cannot determine if the sealant canister was replaced or not. Is there any tell-tale sign to know if the canister is empty?

Shake it, you should be able to tell if it's empty or not.
Sure enough, it sounds like there's liquid in there. Thanks for the common sense answer! :)

Actually, now that I'm home with it, I compared it to the similar unit in my Fusion - which has not been used - and the sealant hose is the same color. I think what I assumed was sealant residue is simply the slightly opaque nature of the hose.

Thanks again.

As I recall the canisters expire two years after the fill date.

KNS
Canister expiration date says March 2019. Sounds like it's 5 years, not 2.
