It's probably a daft question but...............

apart from nothing getting coked......is there a way to determine how much
gas is in a bottle?

Shake it, when all the liquid is (nearly) gone it will still burn, but will
run out very soon.
I suppose weighing would be the most accurate method.

Find an empty one, find a full one, weigh them all and you have some
idea of how empty it is.
