Comment: NO NAG - Gas Gauge & 22kg Scales

With out using this I would not buy it as I would have to unscrew a bracket to remove my bottles and disconnect them and lift them out of my van, would take too long, hot water works for me.

Yep, that is my conclusion as well.

hi there
yes i had a good look at another web site that was $2 cheaper than eo offer including postage
they claim it can be used to way luggage and fish etc but i already have scales for that
and in view of as said having to dismantle gas bottle clamps etc in order to use the no-nag gadget
i have imho decided that the old boiling water test system is my choice as no unclamping is required and its another piece of trickery that needs to be carried ????
but
i think it always come done to personell choice
cheers

Hot Water Method of checking LPG levels.

1. Boil jug or kettle.
2. Take jug or kettle to LPG bottle. (This is easier than taking LPG bottle to jug or kettle.
3. Pour a stream of hot water down the side of the LPG bottle to heat it.
4. Now touch LPG bottle from the bottom where water has run, and move finger up slowly.
5. Where the temperature of the steel bottle changes indicates the level of liquid gas inside the bottle.
6. How it works. The gas in the bottle doesn’t absorb the heat from the hot water as readily as the liquid does. Thus the metal heats up where there is gas, and stays cool where there is liquid.

So endeth the lesson for today.

The product would be useful for smaller gas bottles ( 4 KG)
where I have trouble with hot water method. I don't carry a second bottle
and have no room anyhow and have to guess if the gas will last till I hit the next town .

Thanks for your feedback on this product. we're excited to have NO NAG on the market and appreciate your comments. We developed NO NAG for measuring the remaining gas in a range of bottles up to a total weight of 22kg, but aren't intending that this is suited for caravanners who have to disconnect their bottle first...we are hoping though that NO NAG provides a safer and more accurate alternative to the hot water method, particular for the patio bbq's.
I do envy you all out there enjoying your caravanning experiences!...Bob Baade NO NAG
