Dude, your awsome lol, good work man, I emailed ya for one of those, your a god of cust service Carl.. and ya CT employees are idiots, never ask em for nothing, cuz they really know nothing, most of em anyways.

Just for some clarificataion, If you put the guage in the tank and it goes past the o-ring, does it just come back out after if you turn it upside down or how does it work exactly?

All the gauge does is show if the ID of the oring is too small which occurs because the retainer ring is squishing it to a smaller diameter. If the ID is too small, it'll stop the tube from falling past so it'll sit high.

If the ID is at the design spec for the tank, the gauge will fall in and fall back out.

I'm under the impression that this means that the propane inside will push it back out.

In this case--Is there any chance of the gauging tool falling into the tank and becoming lodged inside?

When you get your gauge it'll all become crystal clear. There's only so much I can do with text and pictures. Sorry, I can answer questions until my fingers fall off, but most of them will be answered the first time you use the gauge.

No, the gauge is just a piece of tube, it can't fall in, and propane is not pushing anything out..

If it sits in the valve, then the tank is good, if it sits on top of the o ring and not nicely in the valve, its no good.

I avoided this whole problem just by buying mastercraft propane torch tanks they are a lit longger but skinier than coleman tanks and they dont have any issues.

Some of the best customer service I've ever seen. Hopefully it doesn't cost Max too much.

Anyway you could just tell us the diameter of the gauge and we could use a drill bit of corresponding size like you mentioned earlier? Save you the hassle of shipping out a zillion little pieces of brass tubing.

The tubing is 0.147" diameter. There are no close fractional drill bit diameters, but you can use a #26 drill if you can get to a machinist tool supply store.
