How to Check the Level of Your Propane Storage Tank

In North Texas, no fuel beats propane. After all, its affordability, abundance, support of local economy, and reliability make it a top-notch option. But how can you determine how much of this versatile fuel is remaining in your propane storage container? Use this guide from Enderby Gas to learn how to read your propane tank gauge and see when you need to place a propane delivery request.

Reading Your Propane Storage Tank’s Fill Gauge

When it comes to determining your level of propane fuel, we’ve got you covered with a simple explanation in this blog post. Don’t be intimidated—checking your propane level is easier than you think. Just follow these three simple steps to reading your fuel level. If you’re running low on propane, having trouble reading your fuel level, or thinking your gauge is broken, please give us a call, so we can help.

  1. Approach your propane tank on your property. Clear away any debris or pests that might be lingering around your LP storage container.
  2. Find the small cylinder or dial on top of the tank. The gauge will show a small marker according to how full your tank is. It can be at any of the following levels: Full, ¾, ½, ¼, or Empty.
  3. If the bobber in your propane tank gauge is at or below 1/4, it’s high time to place your propane delivery order! Deliveries can take up to a few days, so it’s important to order well before your bobber hits that “E” mark.

TIP: Reading a propane gauge is just like reading the gas gauge in your vehicle! Keep this handy trick in mind while inspecting the fuel level of your tank.
