Taking the Guesswork out of Fuel Monitoring
By Perry Rackley
Would you like to know your current fuel inventories at any time and from anywhere? Would you like to be notified the moment your fuel storage tanks reach a predetermined point at which you need to schedule a delivery and again when the delivery is made? Not only is that possible, it is easier and more affordable than you might think.
Remote wireless tank monitoring is now available to both large and small FBOs and fuel managers for an initial equipment investment of a few hundred dollars and a small monthly monitoring fee. Installation is quick and easy, with a battery operated transmitter that attaches magnetically to the outside storage tank wall and an internal probe that only requires a 2” threaded tank opening.
Reporting is totally customizable by user and accessible via website access from your computer or from your smart device by downloading a free app. With system access, a registered user can:
- Take the guesswork out of scheduling deliveries by viewing historical tank usage data to predict future inventory.
- Avoid costly outages and emergency deliveries by monitoring daily reports and setting up user definable push notifications to your smart device that alert you when tank levels reach a warning level and again when a critical inventory is reached.
- Reduce operating costs and notification time associated with manual inventory monitoring and reporting.
