It's difficult to tell how much propane is left in your BBQ tank...
Picking it up and swishing it around doesn't really help. Pressure gauges give only minutes warning before the tank is empty. And, replacing the tank before it's needed wastes expensive gas.
The Propane GasGenie® is the ONLY product that actively warns you in time to finish your BBQ.
Wonderful! I would certainly recommend the Propane GasGenie to anyone who has experienced the frustration of running out of gas at the wrong moment. Most of us, I guess! More testimonials
The Propane GasGenie® detects low propane levels using very small temperature changes over time on the tank wall. Pressure Gauges attempt the same thing using gas pressure.
Unfortunately, pressure is not a useful indicator of liquid level in a propane tank. If there is any liquid remaining in the tank the pressure shown on the gauge will remain high.
So when a pressure gauge begins to show the pressure dropping it means that the propane is gone, or just about gone. You get at best a few minutes before the tank is empty. Often not enough to finish cooking. (See the many low rated reviews of pressure gauge types at amazon.com)
This shows pressure is affected only by the temperature of the gas above the liquid and not the quantity of liquid.
