My inside gauge showed 2/3 full
The external gauge on the tank showed a little over 1/4 full

I filled it

The tank on my Vegas 24.1 took 4.4 gallons to get to the full light on the inside gauge, and 80% on the tank gauge.

Now I read on “the google”...An empty 20 lb tank will hold about 4.7 gallons of propane.

Question: Is my tank a 40 lb tank? It says 12 gal on the label

My dear mother-in-law is a huge gas bag and shoots fireballs from her nether region when gas is present so the slower the fireballs come the closer the tank is to empty. I created a chart so I can count the fireballs and know exactly how much propane is in the tank. If I vary her diet I get a multitude of colors. She's not affected by weather, opinions, facts, common sense or any manner of coaxing so it's a very accurate read.

CONS: This is however the most expensive method of tank level indication. You must feed, clothe, house, hear and pretend you are interested in her all the time and she just won't go away.

PROS: The kids in all the camping spots love the fireworks display.


Dammit: I just spit an entire cup of perfectly good coffee; across the entire keyboard.

Your spec sheet shows 41 pound tank - 9.6 gallons. If your tank took 4.4 gallons to fill then you were a little over half full to start.

If we're going to be doing more Math problems: the answer is "Bacon"...
A wise member recently pointed out to me that "Bacon is the answer to everything", and I'm not going to dispute this sage advice.
