    Yes, your question is answered right there on the tube.

    That reminds me of another age-old, but as yet unanswered question; how many licks does it take to get to the chewy center of a toosie-roll pop? :chuckle :Santa1:

    and if you want to "test" to see if there is any med left....take the cyl. out and float it upside down in a container of water....if it sinks, good...floats, running low,....if it tries to flip over, empty.....

    Not a good way to test using the float method. Even though it would show that there is "stuff" left you should discard after the number of puffs written on the label. In my case I usually get right at 24 days when my 200 are up. I have never had an mdi not spray afterwards, but I prefer to get my med rather than propellant.
