I'm trying to work out how much gas i have left, dose anyone know how much a full and a empty 13.5 kg gas bottle weighs, or any other way to decide how much gas is left, thanks in advance.

Regards Adi, Michelle, Beck
and Braydon.

Yes there is a far better way than the lift - n - shake method as we used to struggle with.

Fit one of these . . .

I just bought a widget from the swindlery! Only £3 and it promises to attach itself to a gas bottle magnetically and tell me how full/empty it is. Now I've not tried it yet but it could be a good solution.

Hi look round the neck of the bottle and it should list the bottle weight as net/terr (something like that) and take it that away from your current bottle weight.

Hope that helps

I seem to recall a gadget made of tape which you stuck to the side of the bottle. It worked similar to a thermometer (changing colours) leaving a mark where the gas was. Wonder if you can still get them.

Thanks for the replys guy's as Griff says the lift and shake method aint good enough however i would like to know how accurate the dial job is, and if Trevor could let us know how good his new gadget is that would be great.

and Braydon.

gas is not an exact science when it comes to weight, when it warm more lpg turns to gas and weighs more when cold it will turn back to liquid, propane turns to gas at -37 degrees and butane 0deg cent

I've always used "Gaslow" gauges on my boats and caravans, similar to the photo Griff posted.

They give a reasonable indication of how much gas is still in the bottle, and allow me to habitually check for leaks in the pipes and regulator every time I use the boat, in a few seconds, just by turning the gas on and off.
