How do I tell how much gas is left in my gas bottle?


Carefully pour a cup of hot water (using care) down the side of the bottle. The level of the remaining gas will be shown as a line of condensation. If there is no line, wait a moment and feel the cylinder. It will feel cool at the level of gas. If there is no line and no difference in temperature, it is most likely empty.


If you have two gas bottles, it is best if you order your next replacement bottle once the first one has been emptied so you are not left short!


Note: Gas bottles are designed to be full at 80% or just over 3/4. The bottles are oversized so you get the full measure of gas. The unfilled space allows for the natural expansion of the gas during warmer temperatures. This space is referred to as 'ullage'.
