How do I know how much propane is left in my tank?
Even though it is such a small component, your propane tank gauge is essential because it keeps you informed about how much propane you have left. This level, which is actually a percentage, helps to inform Annapolis Propane & Fuels when you're going to need a delivery.
- Open the lid of the propane tank to view the gauge.
- Keep in mind that your tank gauge uses percentages as indicators to how much propane you have left. For example, a reading of 40% means that you have around half of a tank. Yes, you read that right. Our propane professionals at Annapolis Propane & Fuels fill propane tanks to about 80% of their capacities. This is the safest delivery method because propane expands and contracts whenever stored in a tank, especially on warm or hot days. So it needs that additional 20% capacity to move around.
- When will I need a propane delivery? If you see that your tank gauge is at 30% or a lower percentage, then it definitely is a good idea to call us to get your tank refilled and continue to enjoy the many uses of propane.
