Will Buy: App-Sensor Combo Tells You When Your Grill’s Tank Needs Refueling


Hank Hill would be proud.

Originally introduced in early December, Quirky’s “Refuel” app-connected propane tank sensor is now entering production. Quirky estimates the product will cost around $18.

For that, you get a ring-shaped apparatus that sits under your grill’s propane tank and is connected to a gauge that adheres to your grill with a magnet. Take a peek at the gauge when you’re near the grill, or instead fire up the smartphone app that connects to Refuel to see how much gas you have left before you need to drag the tank back to Strickland Propane for a refill.

It’s a smart solution to a lazy man’s problem, but Hank Hill would be proud.
