On the side of most fill valves,there is a small screwdriver slot ,that is what they open sometimes when filling,when liquid comes out it is full,its called the 80% Valve ...
Just so you will know propane expands 270 times its liquid volume when it boils off to gas, liquid propane does not burn ,its the gas/vapor

This is one of those things that's not lawyer speak, kind of like the warning to not smoke near gas pumps. It's the physics of gases. And it's dangerous to ignore. Because people ignored this so often they sadly had to make it a federal law.

Don't know about that. I pour hot water over the side of the tank, then feel where the tank temp changes from warm to cold...that would be the propane level.

It has an OPD (Overfill Protection Device) inside the tank and cannot be filled past that mark..
