How to Check Your Grill Tank Level

Three simple ways to confirm the fill level of your propane cylinder.

grill tank exchange Berkeley Springs, WV After so many weeks of frigid weather in Berkeley Springs and throughout the Eastern Panhandle region, we wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t thought about your grill for a while. But the warm weather is coming soon, and with that, we expect to see Roach Energy customers lighting up their propane grills.

Do you recall how much propane was in your grill tank the last time you cooked out?

Many of today’s freestanding grills have scales in their storage compartments where you attach your 20-pound propane cylinder with a restraining bolt, and the scale tells you how full it is.

How can you gauge the amount of propane left in your cylinder if your grill doesn’t have a cylinder scale? Here are three simple methods:

1. Weighing the Propane Cylinder on a Home Scale

You can use a regular home scale to figure out your grill tank’s current fill percentage. Start by looking for two numbers on the neck of your cylinder:

Weigh the cylinder on your home scale, subtract the TW, and then divide the result by the WC. This calculation is the current percentage fill of your grill’s tank.

2. Using Hot Water to Find Your Fill Line

Remember that propane is stored in your cylinder as a compressed liquid. By finding the fill line on your grill tank, you can determine approximately how much fuel is left for your grill. To do this, all you need is some hot water.

Fill a bucket with hot water and pour it over the side of your cylinder. Propane absorbs heat, so the cylinder metal will feel cool where there’s fuel. This method provides an indication of the current fill level.

3. Purchasing an External Tank Gauge

External tank gauges are excellent, convenient ways to keep constant track of how much grilling propane you have. These devices are available on Amazon and at most hardware stores. They attach between the grill’s regulator and the cylinder service valve. Depending on the model, you can access analog or digital readouts. In addition to always knowing the fill percentage of the grill time, you might be able to see the remaining cooking time, and some external tank gauges even have smartphone connectivity!
