If your propane gas gauge reads 20%, there is plenty of time to refill your tank.

We carefully select the right size propane tank based on your estimated usage and need for propane delivery.

The 20% ensures that we have more than enough time to refill the propane gas tank. If your gauge reads lower than 20%, you are welcome to call us to make sure that we have your propane delivery scheduled.

How to Find Your Gauge on Underground & Aboveground Tanks 

Gauges are on most Kauffman Gas tanks.

Don't have a gauge?

We track how much propane gas you use with each delivery. To be safe, we try to refill the tanks at 20%.

Weighing Your Grill Tank

An empty 20lb tank will weigh around 18-20 lbs. 
A full tank will weigh between 38-40 lbs.

Most people do not know how much gas they have until they run out. The best way to ensure you never run out is to always have a full spare tank.
