Propane Tanks have a gauge located on the tank. See the photos below to determine how to read the gauge on the propane tank. Most propane tank gauges read anywhere from 5% to 90%. To determine how much gas is in your propane tank, multiply the reading by the capacity of the tank.

For example:

A 500 gallon propane tank at 40% = 500 x 0.4 = 200 gallons remaining in the tank.

These calculations are approximate and can only be used to determine estimated gallons in the tank.
