The in line ones just read tank psi. You can check by pouring hot water on the tank and feel where it's cold.

Thanks everyone for the info. I like the plexiglass window idea to view the indicator. I think we'll keep doing what we are doing and keep both open, and just make sure we top off the tanks before a longer trip.

I still rely on the old fashioned magnetic ones. You just run very hot water over it and it reads pretty accurate. I use one tank at a time. Otherwise it seems I always
have two tanks that are half full. If we are going for a week or so I like to know that they both are full when we leave. Never know where the next fill station is.

CW has them for like $7 each so the magnetic ones work well?

Yes, no problem with magnetic strip. Probably had this one for 5 or 6 years. Mine fits vertically on the tank. Changes colors to indicate amount of gas in tank.

One tank on, other tank off, nothing to remember or to look at. Automatic notification you can't ignore.

We have dual tanks and when 1 of them goes empty we have to manually flip/ turn the dial between the tanks so as to show which tank is being used. Red Dot indicates empty tank, Green Dot indicates full tank ( or tank in use ). We learned this last weekend when we ran out of propane. ARGH! At least we though so. Phew!


We, too thought both tanks ran simultaneously. SURPRISE! LOL. Now we know just to refill when one goes dry. You only run out ONCE! LOL

Yup, and if a cold night, turn the 2nd tank on and back off in the morning while making coffee on the stove...you will soon know if your in need of a refill.

We have 3 tanks and I use the old fashioned way like Oldcoot when one runs out I flip the knob to the other tank and know that one needs refilled. I've never been without propane in over 30 years using this method. The tank gauge works off pressure and the magnetic strip works off temp. neither are real accurate you can weigh your tank would be most accurate but who wants to do all that work. LOL I don't mind waiting on one to run out and then turning on another one. LOL
