I purchased the natural gas model. Got tired of driving to the depot to fill up the propane tanks. In addition, the propane always seemed to run out when you had company and you were half way through cooking the steaks \:\(

I always keep a spare full tank on hand and use this little in line device between the tank and the grill, works like a charm.

The summit has a built in tank gauge, allthough I can not vouch for its accuracy. I just put a new tank on there and it said that it was nearly full though.

Same with my Weber Spirit and the new, almost full tank. I knew I should have asked for a different one... ;\)

If it's the same type of gauge that's on the Genesis, the gauge that reads the weight of the tank with the slide indicator on the tank mount I wouldn't vouch for it's accuracy either .... that's exactly why I bought the in-line pressure read gauge.

Having the grill connected with natural gas would be the way to go but everything in my home is electric and I couldn't justify having a big natural gas tank installed specifically for a grill.

You could try RV parts stores too.

Rick,
I committed to the natural gas model as we moved into a newer home this past March. I ran a new natural gas line to the bbq. My wife needed a dedicated electrical service for her pottery kiln (garage) so I killed two birds with one stone and ran the natural gas line in the trench. Big $$$ later we were both happy! \:\)
