There, that said it! I'm looking for a gague that will tell me (roughly) how much gas is in my bottle.
I've seen really inexpensive ones online that attach to the tank via magnet (chf 10 or so). Anyone have experience with them?
I've not started to look in the Usual places, coop b&h, obi, jumbo - has anyone seen them there....
i saw one that was chf 90, but for that much, might as well just get a spare tank.
Which leads me to another question. If you had a spare tank, where would you store it? My choices are in my keller or somewhere on my terrace.

I had the same query when I first got my gas grill; how much gas is left in the bottle and is it enough for the next grilling session. So after looking around on the net, I found that a really simple method to roughly gauge how much is left in the bottle is to pour warm water down the side of it and run your hand down from the top to the bottom and you will feel the temperature difference.
The propane absorbs the heat from the warm water and so you will immediately feel the coldness and know if you have gas in there or not.
For a much more accurate way of knowing how much is in there and if you have enough left for your next grill session, you can use this method
I found that after a while, I got to know by feel if there was enough for my cooking or not.
I think if you are using your grill a lot, it would be worth it to invest in a second tank as there will be no scrambling mid-cook and also, you will take an empty tank back to replace, not an almost empty one that you don't know if it's going to be enough or not one, I mean, it's just giving money away and I always say, "it's better in my pocket than theirs".
Edit, if I had a spare bottle, I would keep it in an out of the way place close to the grill if possible, so if you need to swap it mid cook your heat loss is minimal. They are very safe, truly...
