gates not recognizing gaseous fluid levels #4133

I am trying to use gates to turn on a wire when the gaseous fuel in a tank reaches 25%. Regardless of the trigger I use the gate powers the wire unless the tank is full. My guess is I am not using the gate correctly or not using the right trigger. If this is a known issue I apologize for re-posting it. BC .15 had the same behavior.

MC 1.12.2, forge, BC 7.99.16

I think this might be due to the fluid trigger only reading from a single tank block rather than the whole stack. Can you try with just a single tank block? (Also, can you try with a gate with at least one trigger parameter and add a fluid filter to the first parameter slot?)

Note that neither case are grounds to disregard this issue.

it seams to work ok with non gaseous. I will try it with a single block and also a standard BC tank and not the diamond.

Does seem to be related to multiblock tanks. when I tested a basic gate and an Iron And gate with and without the hot fuel parameter it worked fine. when I add the 2nd block it powered the wire regardless of what less than full condition I set. I am going to confirm that gates work with the non gaseous fluids tomorrow.
thank you.

it seems that gates work as I guess they are supposed to with non gaseous liquids in multi block tanks. I hope that helps figure out whats going on with the gates.

Merge pull request #4192 from rosebeats/8.0.x
Changed getTankProperties to test for fluid on top as well as the bottom tank.

This fixes #4133.
