For Propane Customers
To check the gauge on your propane tank, look for the round dial (it looks like a speedometer) with numbers from 5 – 95. So that propane gas has room to expand with changing temperatures, an above ground tank is considered full at 80% of its capacity. You should call Eastern to request a delivery when your tank is at the 30-40% level or at least 10 days before you would like it to arrive.

For Oil & Kerosene Customers
Look for your gauge on the top or side of your tank. An oil tank is typically located in the basement and kerosene tanks are located outside the home. Both look like a big black elephant. The gauge will have a bubble that floats a marker to indicate your tank level. Measure your tank level by reading the number next to the top of the marker i.e. full, ¾ or ½ or ¼ or empty. You should call Eastern to request a delivery when your tank is between a ¼ & ½ a tank or at least 10 days before you would like it to arrive.
