As we prepare for SHTF

Don't be caught with an empty tank if yours has no gauge.

There is a very simple way to tell how much propane is left in your tank.

Here’s what I do when I want to know how much propane is left in my tank. I get a container of hot water from the sink and pour it down the side of the tank. Then, I feel the side of the tank to see where the temperature changes occur.

The side of the tank will feel warm where it’s empty and cool where the propane level begins. It’s fast and easy to do so it won’t take up a lot of your time. More importantly, it really works!

This method may not be as accurate as reading a gauge. However, it will be a very close estimate. Now you know how to tell if your home propane tank is empty or close to it.

I have an extra tank in the basement in case SHTF, so I can still cook without power. Ammo & propane, you won't go hungry.
