How to Check Your Propane Tank
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

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.
