No more worries about running out of propane right in the middle of grilling, cooking, smoking, camping or RVing. And no more unnecessary trips for refills when there was still some left in the tank. With the Epica Propane Tank Pressure Gauge on board, you'll always know when you're good to go.
Easy to Attach
The gauge installs on the main fuel feed line and can stay there permanently, telling you just where you stand whenever you use your grill, smoker, camp stove or other propane gas powered equipment. Screw threads let you attach it without tools, and it fits all brands and models with a type 1 connection and up to a 40-lb. propane tank.
Solid Brass Withstands Weather, Scratching, Denting and Corroding
Cheaper metals can get corroded, plated surfaces scratched and worn away. But solid brass is impervious to the elements and highly resistant to damage during use or transport. It's the material to count on when you need years of trouble-free, heavy-duty service.
Color Coded Dial for Easy Viewing
No need to bend over or squint at tiny level markings. One glance at the Epica's large dial will tell you whether you're in the red (empty), yellow (low) or green (sufficient).

Although, the device looks brand new (since it was covered/protected) it no longer registers. I took it off the RV tank and tried a couple other tanks that were full and it just indicates "Refill". So ridiculous that the device is made of heavy duty brass material and was kept covered with little to no use and failed after less than a year. This device is garbage.....
UPDATE-9/25: After posting my dissatisfaction the company contacted me and offered a replacement stating the product has a lifetime warranty.
If I receive the replacement product and it last more then a year under conservative use we will update the post as applicable.
UPDATE: After requesting fulfillment of lifetime warranty replacement, seller provided a new replacement for my original faulty device. Device arrived post-haste in new packaging and fully functional. It is refreshing to work with a company/seller that stands-behind their product and fulfills product warranty.
* Connects to standard OPD tank valve
* Connects to standard grill hose
* Does not seem to increase leak-down
* Color gauge is easy to read in dim light
* Low price
* No temperature compensation
I got this so I could better predict my tank lifespan.
I turn off the tank between grill uses, because the knobs leak down a bit.
As soon as I turn on the tank, this gauge springs to life.
Temperature matters hugely for propane, so at 80% into the green on a warm day, you might see bottom edge of green on a cold day.
Not much you can do about that unless you have a temperature gauge as a counter-spring, which means more complexity, more price, more breaking.
Anyway, this was exactly what I wanted. It's low cost and lets me know when it's almost time to swap out the tank.
These gauges only register when the valves are turned on and the system is pressurized. Sometimes I get a false empty reading, but if I turn on a burner and start the fuel running it will show the accurate reading again.
The price and quality of these gauges are perfect.
Leakage - getting the connections tight is obvious. The tricky part is knowing when they are tight enough given you can still rotate the gauge a little when tight. A little dishwashing soap and water, spooned over the connections (including the gauge into the body). No bubbles and all will be good. Remembering to turn off the gas at the tank after use will help get rid of the nasty surprise later.
Accuracy - those of us who heat with propane know the relationship between liquid in the tank and gauge gas pressure is approximate and pressure sensitive to temperature. Weight is accurate but awkward. When you are in the yellow be prepared. I did a few simple checks. The gauge appears to work properly. Should the experience change I would hope to record it here.
