I think the tank should be at about 800 PSI. It will stay there until
the tank is about 90% empty. At that point, all the liquid is gone,
leaving only the remaining gas. Once the pressure gauge starts to
drop, it's time for a refill.
I do see a slight variation in pressure (not more than 25psi or so) based
on temperature. Not enough to explain your drop.
