      If you open the bleed valve the tank should have the correct amount
      when the liquid starts to come out... if the bleed valve doesn't work
      you should fix/replace it.

      The only time a scale might be better than a gallon meter is IF the
      tank is not empty and IF the bleed valve doesn't work. Other than
      that you watch the bleed valve & the gauge/scale, if you put 5
      gallons in a tank that is supposed to hold 4 you have a problem.
