How Can I Check The Propane Level In My Grill Tank?

Propane is a very popular fuel for grilling, with good reason. It’s fast, easy, and gives great results.

Whether you’re grilling a quick weeknight supper of having family and friends over for a cookout, you want to be sure you have enough propane in your grill tank.

The easiest way to do that is to install an external gauge, which can be bought at home improvement stores and online retailers. If you don’t have a gauge, there are other ways to see how much propane you have in your grill tank.

One way is by using water. Fill a bucket with warm or hot tap water. Pour that water down one side of the tank and immediately run your hand over where you poured the water. Where the tank starts to feel cold, that indicates the level of about how much propane is left in your tank.
