Q: How do I read my propane tank gauge?

A: The gauge on your tank measures how full your tank is as a percentage. Because space is set aside in your tank to allow for expansion and contraction based on changes in temperature, your tank should never read more than 80% full. How fast you use propane is based on how many propane appliances in your home, and the Btu rating for each appliance. You can eliminate the task of having to read your gauge by enrolling in automatic delivery. When you do, we will install a wireless monitor on your tank that tells us when it’s time to make a delivery. If you prefer to call us for deliveries, please be sure to do so before your tank level reaches the 25% mark.
