    I can’t see how this is a good way to check. No matter what the top is going to be hotter. The water is cooling by the time it gets near the bottom especially if the tank is already cold.

    Thank you so much that's the best tip. I tried it & I was so amazed not because it worked, but more because I am always on my grill, &I went and brought a gage & this costed me nothing, but a big cup of hot water. Thank you again.

    my LP tank is leaking around the threads of the gauge. I tried to remove the gauge and the float fell off inside the tank. Do you know where I can get a replacement?
