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

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.
