How Much Propane do I have in My Tank?
Everything you always wanted to know about propane tanks but were too afraid to ask!
The propane industry is a bit mysterious in that there is more than one way to describe a propane tank or cylinder.
Propane Tanks have a gauge located on the tank. See the photos below to determine how to read the gauge on the propane tank. Most propane tank gauges read anywhere from 5% to 90%. To determine how much gas is in your propane tank, multiply the reading by the capacity of the tank.
A 500 gallon propane tank at 40% = 500 x 0.4 = 200 gallons remaining in the tank.
These calculations are approximate and can only be used to determine estimated gallons in the tank.
