How low can you let a propane go before you should refill it?

I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question.

I bought a home this year and use propane for cooking only. I believe I have an 80 gallon tank. I was just wondering how low can I let the gauge read before i should have the tank refilled. I know they only fill it to 80%. Right now is around 30%, just not sure how low it can go be for I am asking for problems.

Thanks

In my area they will not fill it up untill you are under 20% unless you are on the auto fill plan.

Propane suppliers in my area generally have a $100 minimum for delivering propane. With an 80 gallon tank I would call them (your propane supplier) and ask. The amount may vary if you own or rent the tank.

My company wants you to call them at 20% however I have gone down to 5%. I'm at about 18% now that you mention it. So I guess I should call them one of these days.

Propane is $2.59/gallon right now. I'm not what the price will do. I have a 1'000 gallon tank so even 20% is quite a bit especially during the summer. I feel like a stock broker playing the commodities market. Should I buy now or wait???
