I am new to the world of a skid house and such things with it.

I have 2 100lbs propane tanks. One has frost on the outside of the tank. Does that mean it is near empty?

Frost on a tank can tell you how much is left. You can see where the frost line is your indicator.

It's a trial and error thing.When you get a propane tank filled it's only a little more than 1/2 full of liquid.Once you fill a few of them you'll get the hang of figuring out how much is in the tank by feeling the weight.c63

ROC is right, The frost line will tell you exactly how much gas is left.

Propane cylinders are filled to 80%, if you're only getting 50%, you're getting short - changed.

If you want to know Exactly what is in the tank, locate the Tare Weight(TW) on the tank, weigh it and do the math. This works for everything but the 1 pounders. I just use a bathroom scale.
