I do agree the pressure ones do give some degree of reliability.

I also have a set of two 30 lb. tanks with the new OPD system and mechanical gauge for each tank. These gauges indeed measure LPG levels. Pressure gauges are great to measure pressure; if you have pressure you have LPG, no pressure - no LPG, kind of binary gauge. With a mechanical level gauge I can anticipate if refill is needed ahead of running close to an empty tank.
