How Do I Read My Gauge?

It is very important to stay above 20%. Safety regulations require Community Co-ops to perform a leak test before refilling an empty tank. Therefore, if your tank is empty, we may charge for this service and a responsible adult will have to be available at the home at the time of the leak check.

Look at the gauge attached to the tank with the numbers 5 to 95. These numbers indicate the percentage of gas in the tank. Follow this guideline to determine what is available in your tank. When calling in a propane fill order, please have the current percent of your tank available.

What is the tank lease charge for?

Community Co-ops assumes responsibility for the tank and equipment upkeep and maintenance which includes your tank painting, the tank regulator and regular leak checks. A tank lease fee helps us to ensure that your propane system remains in good working condition.
