I have that same gauge, I have never seen it go above half on full, no matter what the outside temp is. In fact I have 2 and they both are the same, never ever got to the top of full. When it drops passed the green I refill. But I have never ran out of propane, like I use to without it.

nuisance has the best method to check for gas level. There is also a fiberglass type tank you can "see thru" and thereby see the level of the gas. Usually, they way I find out is I check the auto changeover valve every moring, while camping> and if it has switched to the other (full) tank, I remove the now empty tank and get it filled. Also, US regs state tanks must be hydro tested periodically - 7 yrs comes to mind.

That was the method I used when my tanks were on the outside, easy to see. Now that the tanks are on the inside of the 5er the water method makes a little more mess

Yep, that it will. If you have the auto switch valve just use that feature w both tank valves on and refill the empty one when it switches. You have some time before the second tank goes low. I have been getting about one season per tank.
