Reading Your Propane Tank Gauge

Roach Energy offers FREE automatic propane delivery.

propane tank Hedgesville, WV How many of your home’s systems, appliances and amenities depend on propane? Many Roach Energy customers in Hedgesville and elsewhere in eastern West Virginia use this versatile fuel to heat their homes all winter, generate robust hot water, cook meals, dry clothes and provide backup power. Propane powers gas logs, firepits, grills, patio heaters and other fantastic products that improve your quality of life.

Having a propane tank on your property, you can enjoy energy independence. You control your own heating fuel instead of relying on a utility with under-maintained infrastructure. With Roach Energy as your partner, you can rest easy that we’ll get to you when you need a propane delivery.

That said, it’s important to know how to read your propane tank gauge and when to contact us for more fuel.

Finding and Reading a Propane Tank Gauge

You will find your gauge on top of your home’s propane tank. There’s a small dome lid covering it. Lift it, and you’ll find a gauge resembling a car’s speedometer with numbers from 5 to 95. This number indicates the percentage full your tank is, based on the current volume of your propane (how much space it takes up) using a float on the end of a stem.

We recommend that customers contact us when their tank gauge is around 30%.

Volume Changes in Your Propane Tank

Propane is transported and stored under pressure as a liquid. Propane’s volume can expand and contract depending on several factors, including outdoor temperatures. Like water, propane expands as the temperature rises. But propane’s volume increases nearly 17 times the volume of water over the same temperature increase.
This can affect the reading on your tank gauge. For example, in moderate temperatures (around 60°F), the gauge of a 250-gallon propane tank containing 100 gallons of propane would read about 40%. But if the temperature drops in the evening, that 100 gallons of propane would contract, and the tank gauge might show a lower percentage fill with the same amount of fuel.

The question of volume expansion also affects how propane companies fill tanks. Roach Energy and all other companies follow the “80-20 fill rule.” When we do propane delivery for an aboveground tank, we only fill it to about 80%. Leaving space allows the propane to expand safely in warmer weather.

Roach Energy’s FREE Automatic Delivery

With so many responsibilities and challenges in daily life, it can be all too easy to forget to check your propane tank gauge. You don’t want the first reminder that you’re low on fuel to be a heating system that won’t come on.

It can be an expensive and inconvenient situation.

We can help you avoid this situation altogether with our FREE automatic delivery schedule. Roach Energy tracks your fuel usage and plans the next delivery for you. You don’t need to monitor your tank or call us for propane — and you can be confident that you won’t run out.
