They come "pre purged-ed" (under a vacuum, sticker on the knob) if filled within 6 months from the date of manufacturer that's stamped on the collar

U-Haul didn't check the dates on mine but some fillers might and charge for it.

I am under the impression that a propane flame burning orange indicated that there wasn't enough air mixed into the gas. But, it seems odd that both flames are orange.

Floyd, what is useless about the in-line fuel gauges? Scamp offers a propane gauge option for $50. I thought it might be useful to order it on my 2016 trailer.

The "Pressure" type gauge is only an approximation and can vary based on outside temp etc. Most that use them don't like them except as "Almost Empty" indicators.


I you look back a few posts you can find a mechanical float gauge equipped tank for even less than the option. Tell Scamp to delete their tank and take a new one with a mechanical gauge with you when you pick-up.

In line gauges give you a pressure reading. Basically they tell you when they are empty but you most likely already know that

For $60 total , $29.99 each, you can get two cylinders from Sam's Club with level gauges!
That's most likely what Scamp is offering.
