How Can I Tell If My Propane is Running Out?

Wireless tank monitoring gives you peace of mind

propane monitor Raleigh, nc If you have propane in your home, you need to know how much propane is in your tank, which means you need to know how to read your propane tank’s gauge.

Reading a propane tank gauge

Fortunately, reading your propane tank gauge is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Go outside and find the gauge on your propane tank. It is a circular dial like the speedometer in your car.
  2. The dial numbers on the propane tank indicate the fill level as a percentage. So, if the needle points to 50, it means that the tank is 50% full.
  3. If you choose Will-Call delivery for propane, please contact us before your tank level drops below 30% to schedule a delivery. At Parker Gas, we strongly urge our Will-Call customers to not let their propane tank fall below 30% full before contacting us to request a propane delivery. This ensures that your delivery can be scheduled before your propane supply runs low or runs out.

Our FREE Automatic Delivery option means you no longer must check your tank levels. Our system tracks your fuel usage based on your customer history and current weather patterns through a computerized calculation. We use this information to determine when you need your propane tank filled and schedule a delivery.

If you want absolute precision when it comes to your propane supply, we also offer wireless propane tank monitoring with TankWatch!
