LP gauge


Is there a replacement for the drop-in gauge on the large aluminum LP tanks? the ones with the electrical connector?

Greg, the legal tanks now have an Overfill Protection Device (OPD) fitted to the central hole. This is a float valve. The original level sender unit also used a float valve. So that the two float valves do not interfere with each other, the legal tanks with OPD and level gauge facility have TWO threaded holes, a few inches apart. The tanks are sold by Worthington, to name one company. Your tanks are probably like mine, with a single hole. I can't bring myself to spend a lot of dollars on new tanks, so I rely on the red/green flag on the changeover regulator to tell me when a tank is empty. Nick.
