Monitor your propane tank from your smartphone

Know when you're low

When you position your grill in range of a Wi-Fi network, Refuel allows you to monitor your propane supply from anywhere and receive alerts when your tank is running out.

Light it up!

Whenever your smartphone's not handy, just tap Refuel's sensor to display an LED reading of the gas level. Got the green light? Grill on, grill master.

Like all Quirky products, Refuel was invented and influenced by real people like you. The idea for Refuel hit Anthony one Sunday when he and his wife had some friends over for a cookout and ran out of propane. Rest easy, Anthony; that'll never happen again! When he's not grilling, Anthony likes fishing, lobstering, metal detecting on the beach, fixing stuff, and watching the NFL. He's also got an adorable Westie named Stewie. Aww!
