It’s prime barbecue season here in Tennessee – time to get out and cooking on your propane grill! Just make sure you have enough propane on board before your next big summer cookout.
Since most propane barbecue cylinders don’t come with a gauge, you will need another way to figure out how much fuel is left in your tank. Here are three simple ideas for you to try:
To do it,
The top of the cool spot is the fill level of the tank – it’s cool because liquid propane inside the tank is absorbing the heat from the water, which makes the metal wall of the tank cool to the touch.
To measure how many pounds of propane are left in your tank, simply weigh it on a scale and subtract the TW number. For example, if a tank weighing 27 pounds has a TW of 17 pounds, there’s about 10 pounds of gas left – a little more than half a tank.
Pick the device that you’re most comfortable with and give it a go!
