How to Read Your Propane Tank Gauge

Make sure you always know how much gas you’ve got left in the tank

read propane tank gaugeWhat do you use propane gas for in your home? Maybe you use it for home heating. Or water heating. Or cooking. Or space heating. Or in a log set in your fireplace. Or maybe some or all of these things… and more!

Propane’s versatility and efficiency make it a great energy choice for your home. But if you want to enjoy the benefits of propane, you need to have it in your tank.

If you’re not using our automatic propane delivery option, you have to know how to tell just how much propane is in your propane tank so you know when to call us to schedule a delivery.

What to do when reading your propane tank gauge

Go out to your propane tank and look for the round dial on it that looks like a speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 60, your propane tank is 60 percent full. If you use Will-Call delivery, we recommend you don’t let your tank level ever fall below 30 percent before contacting us to schedule a delivery. We always want to ensure you never have to worry about a run-out, or any of the trouble that comes with it…

Don’t forget to check your propane tank levels!

So, reading your propane tank gauge is easy … if you remember to do it. Sometimes, life gets in the way. Whether it’s demands of work, school, family, whatever, you may forget to check your propane tank gauge levels. If you do, you could find yourself running low on propane. That will require an emergency propane delivery.

What’s worse is if you forget and run out of propane. Not only do you need an emergency propane delivery, you’ll also need to have your propane tank pressure tested and all of your propane appliance pilots re-lit by a service technician. That’s a lot of hassle and expense.

You can avoid all of that with our automatic propane delivery! We track your propane usage using your prior usage history as well as current weather conditions to accurately predict when you will need a propane refill and schedule a delivery to your home before you run low. It’s free of charge to enroll, and is super east to do! Just give us a call to get started.
