Have you ever wondered how to know when your gas grill will run out? Are you ready to get technical?
Here are some tips:
- Pour Water on It: Grab a glass of water, and pour the water down the side of the tank. Use your hand to find the spot where the tank goes from feeling warm to feeling cool. The line where it begins to feel cool is about how much propane you have left.
- Weigh It: You’ll need a scale for this one. The average empty propane tank for grilling weighs about 17 pounds and can hold about 20 pounds of gas. Current tank weight – base weight = how much propane is left. So, if you weigh a container that you know is 15 pounds when empty and it weighs 20 pounds currently, you know you have 5 pounds of gas left.
- Buy a Gauge: While this is an option, I don’t recommend it. As I said earlier, I found that my tank went through more gas while using this. And the readings weren’t that accurate anyway.
