An empty 20 lb. tank weighs 18.5 lbs. When I weighed my tank it weighed 33.5 lbs. I subtract 18.5 from 33.5 which tells me I have 15 lbs. in the tank.

Depends on the tank...all mine are stamped TW = 16.6lbs

Edit: I just weighed an "empty" TW = 16.6 (they're never completely empty) and it weighed 17.0
