Tank Monitors Put Fuel Supply Information Right at Your Fingertips!

A whole host of systems and appliances will be affected if you run out of propane. You might not be able to enjoy a hot shower or cook dinner until we set up an emergency propane delivery. Plus, you’re required to have a leak test performed before we can restart your system.

With this in mind, let’s discuss how you can check the fuel level on your propane tank—and how Superior Propane Inc. can make tracking your propane supply even easier.

Checking Your Propane Tank Gauge

The propane tanks we sell, lease, install, and service have gauges you can use to determine how much fuel you have. The gauge has numbers from 0 to 95, indicating the percentage of the tank containing propane (NOT the number of gallons in the tank).

The gauge will never read much higher than 80 because propane tanks aren’t filled to more than 80 percent of their capacity. This is done as a safety measure to account for propane expanding and contracting with temperature fluctuations.

Our Anova Tank Monitors Offer Maximum Peace of Mind

Here’s the problem—often, the moments when you most need to confirm how much propane you have are the moments when you least want to venture outside, like during a windstorm or a sub-freezing January night.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know your propane tank levels without leaving your home? With Anova wireless propane tank monitoring, you can!

In a matter of minutes, Superior Propane Inc. can attach and activate a monitor to your tank. It will track exactly how much propane you have and transmit this data to us—and you—using wireless and cellular technology.

You can check your tank levels with a mobile app. That means, whether you’re sitting on your sofa or sipping a cocktail on a tropical vacation, you’ll know how much propane is in your tank so there’s never any worry.

If you use our Keep Full automatic delivery service, we can use your monitor data to know precisely when to schedule a propane delivery. You can be sure that you’ll never run out of fuel! If you prefer Will-Call delivery, the monitor will send you an alert through the wireless app when it’s time to call for a delivery. It can’t get any easier than that!
