I have a couple of 30 lbs.propane tanks that I want to determine if they are full by weighing. How do I do that? The bottle is stamped WC#72. Is that the full weight? What is the empty weight?

if theres a TW that would be empty weight . I'm thinking full 30 would be a little over 50 lbs.

Pour some boiling hot water on the tank and wait a couple of minutes and you will see the level of fuel in the tank (if there is any) in a short time. The fuel is colder and it will cause condensation on the tank.

TC is 24. One tank weighed 60#, the other 52#. So, I guess one is full and one is about 20% empty.
