For a grid size, simply calculate your weight + 20kg, i.e. how much the full container should weigh. Most 20lb tanks weigh 17kg when completely empty. This means that a full propane tank should weigh around 37 pounds.
At 20 pounds. the tank holds 4.7 liters of propane. Whole 20 kilos. The tank should weigh 40 lbs.
Weigh the tank. Most grill tanks weigh around 17 pounds when empty and hold around 20 pounds of gas. To measure how many pounds of propane you have left in your tank, simply weigh it on a scale and subtract the TW number.
Advantages of Filling a Propane Tank It is cheaper to fill a tank than to replace it. Some people have noticed that they get more propane in the tank when topping up than when they use a spare tank. For many exchange providers, the policy appears to be to only add £ 15 to a £ 20 tank.

How to tell if a gas cylinder is empty
Because when it comes to propane, gauges are practically useless. There is no direct relationship between the pressure in a tank and the amount of propane left in it.
Propane tanks are sensitive to heat. When it is cold or if the tank is too empty, the gases will not expand enough to fill the space in the tank. This creates negative pressure. When the gas is exhausted, there are serious safety risks.
Flushing with liquid propane will cause liquid propane pumped into the tank to convert to vapor, cool the container and condense any water vapor on the tank walls, where it will remain when the pressure is released.
