How to tell if a propane tank is empty.
Here are a couple of tips to figure out if your propane tank is empty (or almost empty).
- Attach a heat-sensitive gauge to the side of the tank. Pour hot water on the gauge. A colour gauge will indicate the amount of propane left in the tank.
- Look at the metal ring on the top of the tank. There are letters and numbers stamped into the metal. Look for "TW" followed by a number. This is the empty weight of the tank. A propane tank generally weighs about 18 to 20 lbs. Put the tank on a scale and if it’s heavier than the TW number, the extra weight is propane still in the tank.
