The tare weight (empty weight) is stamped into the collar of all propane tanks. You can remove the tank and weight it on bath scales, and using the propane weight of 4.11 pounds per gallon, you'll know how much is left. A pain to do, but the most accurate.

I have the gauge. It will show you full and empty. It will go from one to another fairly quickly. I find it useless. I do what others have said and use the crossover gauge to show when ones empty and take it refill it.

Our new 377RLBH has room to carry a third propane bottle. It is possible to plumb it to run in conjunction with the other two, but for now I just store the spare there and always keep two loaded

With my Seismic, this winter when running heat, I loosened the strap and picked it up. I know that sounds crude but it works. The hot water works as well!

So it looks like the SeeLevel II monitors - made mostly for monitoring Water and holding tanks - now include the ability to monitor propane.
The problem I see is that they are made for motorhomes with a single propane tank.
I wish they would make a model that:
1) just measures 2 propane tanks.
2) measures all the tanks AND 2 propane tanks with an electronic notification of the position of the changeover valve.
I e-mailed these product suggestions to their website - but they haven't sent me my commission check yet :-).
