    Hi there is no accurate way other than weighing. You could get an auto change over device. There are pressure devices available but the presure will only drop when it is almost empty so if you dont keep a regular eye on the guage you will still run out.

    Gas bottles know when its raining, they always used to choose to run empty when it was peeing down. :BigGrin:

    There are a few gauges that you can buy, but they rarely work with any degree of accuracy, ForestBoy here has a see through calor bottle and its easy to see when its empty, its really light too, so that is a bonus.
