I had the same issue earlier this year and was told by a Guy servicing my tank at Camping World tell me that there is a difference because the tank is really never full because it has to be left down a certain amount for expansion. Don't know how much of this true, I notice that both my gauge and my control panels read different so I go by what the gauge says and if it looks low I get it filled. Nothing like going to a park for an extended stay and run out of propane.

Personally, I like when someone throws a joke in a thread...especially about gas.

Don't be too concerned with the LED gauge. Ours is the same way until it gets low then you know you should refill soon. The outside gauge is more accurate.

Propane tanks top out at about 80% full. Seems to me they should be metered to show that level as full. Would save a lot of confusion.

Did you find and see the gauge on your tank?
Like others have mentioned 75-80% is full no matter what size tank you have. The extra space is a safety so when temperatures change the liquid propane has room to give off vapors in the empty space so you can use it in your stove.

Like all gauges and LED level markers are just a reference and aren't exact.
If you get down to 1 LED and look at the tank and it shows less than 20% time for a fill up.

Look at the gauge closely and see that 75-80% mark is actually the full liquid mark.

You will never be able to put more than 80% in tank, they are designed that way, will always read just below full when actually full.
