How To Measure Remaining Fuel In Your Canister In The Backcountry

Dijukno a method of determining the amount of fuel remaining in a fuel canister is much easier to do in the backcountry, or in your kitchen if you don't have an accurate scale at your disposal?  The canisters will float upright when placed in water, and the water line will vary depending
on how much fuel is remaining in the canister. If you float a full canister and then float an empty canister, you can measure those water lines and mark them on your new canisters, then re-measure after the canister has been partially used. If the water line is halfway between the 'full' water line and the 'empty' water line, the canister is half full.
