Understanding Your Propane Tank Gauge
To locate the gauge on your propane tank, look under the dome or lid of the tank for a small dial approximately 1.5″-2″ in diameter. Once you find the gauge, you will notice that it has numbers arranged in a clockwise pattern. These numbers indicate the percentage of propane remaining in the tank, not the gallons. The needle will point to the current level of propane as a percentage. On delivery days, remember that tanks are only filled to approximately 80%, which allows for the expansion and contraction of the propane caused by changing temperatures. To ensure an uninterrupted supply, please contact us when your gauge reads 20%-25% and place a propane delivery order. This will allow us plenty of time to make a delivery the next time we are in your area.
