Default propane burner pressures

I have a couple burners on my stand, one is the typical turkey fryer type and the other is a ring burner 100,000 btu. There is always talk of low pressure and high pressure regulators, how much difference is there between the 2. I am using both burners off one propane tank and they seem to work alright.

My frier regulator is 10 PSI and I think it is considered high pressure. A low pressure one I think is about 2 to 4 PSI.

Low pressure propane is 11-14 inches of water or about 1/2 psi. I just got a 130 gallon propane tank installed and the regulator at the tank is 10 PSI. The low pressure regulator at the house is 14 inches.

Everything works ok , i was just wondering if i would get more effeciency by going to a high pressure, if indeed mine was a low press. I think (know) mine is high press. thanks for the responses.
