Modern propane tanks are equipped with a gauge that helps you verify the level of propane left in your tank. To check the gauge on your tank, look for a round dial that looks similar to a speedometer. Typically, it is located at the top of your propane tank next to the fill pipe. The numbers on the gauge range from 5-95. These numbers indicate the percentage of how much your tank is filled – NOT the number of gallons left in the tank.
Good to note: propane tanks are designed to be filled to 80% of capacity. This is because gas needs room to expand with changing temperatures. A “full” propane tank gauge will read 80%.
If your gauge reads 30% or lower, it’s time to request a delivery! This allows enough time to get your request scheduled and delivered without the worry of running out.
