How to Check Your Propane Level

There’s a Better Way to Avoid Runouts

propane If you’re a will-call propane customer, it’s important to know how to check your propane level. The change in seasons may affect your propane use. For example, if you use propane for heat, you may be using less, but if kids are home from college, you may be using more hot water for showers and laundry. That can change how often you’ll need a delivery—so it’s important to keep an eye on your propane tank gauge.

Running out of propane is not just a hassle, it can result in leaks and requires us to perform (and charge your for) pressure testing.

The good news is that checking the gauge on your propane tank is almost as easy as reading the fuel gauge in your car. Here’s what you need to know.

Reading Your Gauge

If you have an above-ground propane storage tank, you’ll find the gas gauge right at the top of the tank, usually under a lid or dome. On underground tanks, the gauge is near the fill pipe. The gauge looks a lot like a speedometer, with numbers going around the edge, and a single pointer. The numbers indicate what percent of gas is in your tank.

When you check your tank, always call for a delivery before your tank falls below 20%. That gives us time to schedule a delivery before your tank gets too low. If your tank falls below that level, it can lose pressure, which leads to problems with equipment. Keep in mind that because propane needs room to expand, your tank will never be filled to more than 80%.

We understand that everyone has a lot on their to-do lists, and checking the propane tank gauge is an easy task to forget about.
