How do I check gas levels in my Kwik-Gas cylinder?

Checking gas levels in your Kwik-Gas cylinder is quick and easy, so you never need to be caught out at family barbecues. Just follow these three steps:

  1. Switch it off: Make sure your Kwik-Gas cylinder valve is turned to the ‘off’ position.
  2. Warm water: Fill a large bucket with warm water and gently pour the water down the side of the cylinder.
  3. Feel the temperature: Carefully feel the cylinder from the bottom up. The steel will feel cooler  below the gas level and warmer above it. Your gas level is at the point where the temperature changes.

Did you know? In 2021, a new, safer, gas cylinder valve connection was introduced across Australia.

New cylinder valve connection – LCC27 valve versus the new POL valve connection.


This new gas valve, referred to as LCC27, restricts gas flow until it is connected correctly to a gas appliance, such as a barbecue or outdoor gas heater.

The new connection also stops the flow of gas in the unlikely event of a fire. The new valve connection (LCC27), will replace the existing POL valve connection.

Watch our video to quickly learn more about the new valve connection and how this affects your outdoor gas appliances in the future.
