Filling Customer Containers: Fixed Maximum Liquid Gauge vs. Float Gauge

Before filling the customers tank, this dedicated propane professional positions the bobtail, performs a site inspection, checks the liquid level in the container, sets the meter, opens the valves, and engages the PTO. He then prepares the hoses and filler valve, connects the hoses and checks for leaks and begins to fill the customer’s container.

As he monitors the filling process, he notices that the fixed maximum liquid level gauge is squirting propane liquid, but the float gauge only shows a reading of 70%.
