  • Gas Bottles.....

    I am wondering if anyone knows how I can tell how full a gas bottle is? From memory the bottle has only been used a handful of times and dont really want to exchange a bottle that is most likely still quite full.

    Any help is appreciated in advance

    then you can run it totally dry and go to your back up - rinse and repeat.

    that is, if it hasnt got a guage

          Pick it up and swish it around. If you can pick it up with one hand its probably near empty. (though i dunno how strong you are so results may vary)

            Pour hot water down the side and you should be able to see a mark!

              This is what I do too, good advice, then you're never caught short.

                i think you guys are pulling the piss!

                on the side it has a net weight and a gross weight. may even call it dry and wet.

                gross weight is bottle full.
                net weight is bottle empty
                difference in 2 weights is obviously the fluid inside being 100%

                weigh it. deduct the net weight and then you can work out what % is left

                  If you check the side of the bottle I think there will be a sticker or something saying what it would weigh empty, chuck it on your bathroom scales and see if it has anything in it.

                  edit: ffs beaten.

                    The full part lower down will sound different to the empty part up top

                      Just take it into your bedroom, close the door and open the bottle. If you die, it was probably full.

                          ^ this is what you do blondie Shann

                          It doesnt even have to be boiling, just hot water from the tap. Leave it a few seconds and feel with the back of your hand. Where it is cold there is gas, if its warm there is no gas.
