It magic. LOL. They are off some. My gauge will show FULL inside but like 65 % on the tank gauge.

But a full propane tank is like at like 75 or 80% to allow room for expansion at higher temps.

I always refill once it gets to about quarter tank.... I dont want to run out when I might need it the most.

If I was going on a long trip (esp when cold at night) I would top off tank no matter what the level shows.
