If you have a propane tank, it can be tricky to know when it needs to be refilled. Simply lifting the tank and checking its weight often doesn’t yield very accurate results. If you use a scale to weigh your tank, you’ll be closer to knowing. Another trick is called the water test. With this test, you pour hot water down the side of your tank; wherever the tank feels cold, there is propane present.
Sometimes your tank needs to be replaced altogether instead of simply refilled. Tanks have expiration dates, so if your tank is older than 12 years, it definitely needs to be replaced. You can find the expiration date on the handle of the tank. Also, if you notice rust or dents on your tank, this is another sign that your tank needs to replaced. Be sure to dispose of these properly when you are done with them.
Be sure to check your propane tank regularly, because you don’t want to run out of gas in the middle of grilling a juicy steak.
