How much should it take?

I changed recently to 2x11kg R67 Gaslow bottles. I knew I was running low tho I hadn't run out (the guages aren't great as the empty melds into the full).

I filled up, and cut the flow manually when I'd reached 37.04 litres. Surely it should have cut out automatically before that? I was working on 2l per kg but I've looked it up n it's 1.96 (propane) so 22kg = 43.12 litres. And 80% fill = 34.5 IF I was absolutely empty, which I wasn't.

Can I assume the 80% fill safety cutout isn't working as it should?

My 11kg Gaslow bottles (not R67) each hold about 21 litres before the cutoff operates so it looks like the 11kg is the 80% amount.

The specification for my Gas-It 11kg bottle states: Fills to approximately 21 litres (at 80% full).
