How to read your tank gauge


If you do not know how to read your gauge, it is important that you contact your propane provider or continue to read below.

 

The gauge is located under the dome lid of you propane tank with numbers from 5 to 95.  This is not pounds or a pressure scale (your pressure scale reads from 0 to 300).  The numbers are indications or the percent that your propane tank is on.  The scale below will help guide you to know have much propane is in the tank. 

 

Reminder:  The gauge is a flotation device and is not completely accurate, it is there to help the customer manage their tank and prevent the tank from running out of propane.
