Propane’s versatility and efficiency make it a great energy choice for your northern Arizona home! But if you want to enjoy the benefits of propane in your home, you need to have it in your tank. And if you’re not using our Automatic Delivery, knowing how to read your propane tank gauge is essential because you have to know how to tell just how much propane is in your tank so you know when to call us to schedule a delivery.

What to do to read a propane tank gauge

Go out to your propane tank and look for the round dial on it that looks like a car’s speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 60, your propane tank is 60% full. If you use Will-Call delivery, don’t let your tank level fall below 30% before contacting us to schedule a delivery. We recommend this so you never have to worry about having enough propane.

Why you need to know your propane tank gauge level

See how easy it is to read the propane tank gauge? But that’s not enough to prevent you from forgetting to do it. Sometimes, it gets lost in the demands of work, school, family, and the other things you have going on in your life.

But when that happens, you risk running low and needing an emergency delivery, or a run-out and the hassle and expense that come with it. Not only will you need an emergency propane delivery, you’ll also need to have your propane tank pressure tested and all of your propane appliance pilots re-lit by a service technician.

Our FREE Automatic Delivery service eliminates all of that! We track your propane usage using your prior usage history as well as current weather conditions to accurately predict when you will need a propane refill. That information lets us schedule a delivery to your home before you run low.
