I have a regulator on gas bottle and I am too lazy to take off LOL

I have 6 KG gas tank, with reg on.
New gas tank full is 22KG (without reg :edit),

Research tells me reg is about 2KG, does not have to be exact.


Orginal weight with gas full 22KG

19KG (weight now with reg) - 2KG = 17KG

22-17 = 5kg

Does that mean I only have 1 KG left, hoping my maths is wrong..

Is the original weight of 22KG full with or without the reg?

If I use 24 and 19, still is a difference of 5 (used?)

6-5 =1 KG left ? Ordered 2 years ago, I am sure I got more out 2.6 KG bottle, or close. I hope maths is wrong...

I guess you dont know if you have a very very slow leak, that can hardly be found. That is why I like to have the gas off most of the time.

Hope maths is wrong. :)

I have just seen another site, Reg is 1.5 KG, I think these are estimates for shipping, I think I will have to weigh unless anyone knows.

Just weighed my regulator at 887 grams.

I guess they vary a lot
