Boehlke Bottled Gas makes it easy to always have propane!

checking propane wisconsinIf you use Will-Call for your propane delivery, it is your responsibility to frequently check your propane tank gauge levels, so you know when to contact us to request a propane delivery.

Reading your propane tank gauge is easy. Look for the round dial on your propane tank that looks like a speedometer. The numbers on the dial indicate the percentage of how full your propane tank is. If the needle is on 50, your propane tank is 50% full.

We strongly advise our Will-Call customers not to let their propane tank levels fall below 30% before contacting us to request a propane delivery. When your tank is about 30% full, it ensures that we can get your order in the quickest possible delivery route near you, allowing us to supply you with propane before you run low.

Propane run-outs: A very bad thing

The major disadvantage of using Will-Call for your propane delivery is that if you forget to check your tank gauge, you might run out of propane. If you are a Boehlke Bottled Gas customer and run out of propane, contact us right away any time of day or night to request an emergency propane delivery.

However, simply having Boehlke Bottled Gas come out to refill your tank won’t solve the problem. You will still be stuck with the inconvenience and added cost.

Emergency propane deliveries come with an added fee. And that is just the beginning.

A required pressure test on your gas lines for any leaks in the piping is another expense that is your responsibility. In addition, all of your propane appliances must have their pilots re-lit by a professional service technician, another cost you must cover.

Boehlke Bottled Gas offers solutions that eliminate all that hassle and expense: Automatic Delivery and wireless propane tank monitoring!

Wireless propane tank monitoring: The ultimate in peace of mind

Wireless propane tank monitoring is ideal for those who want absolute precision when it comes to their propane delivery.
