How To Read Your Propane Gauge


At Shelby Energy, we recommend that you learn how to read your tank gauge and develop a habit of checking it on a regular basis. Follow this simple 2 step process so that you never have to put your life on hold because of an empty tank.

1. Look at the gauge attached to the tank with numbers from 5 to 95. The numbers indicate the percentage of gas remaining in the tank.
