Oil tank monitors vs oil tank gauges
Oil tank monitors remotely and accurately measure and monitor the fuel levels in your tank to ensure the oil does not run out. Using updated technology oil tank monitoring systems can identify when oil levels are low and ensure they are refilled before disaster strikes.
The digitalised nature of oil tank monitors allows you to be notified and alerted of any problems and issues with your oil tank in real time. As part of the priority club, NWF Fuel will monitor your tank for that extra peace of mind.
Oil tank gauges are located in your oil tank and are usually easy and clear to read. They display the level of fuel remaining in the tank, usually indicated by a red marker, rather than the number of litres. Although they do not provide an exact measure of oil in the tank, they give a good indication of oil levels.
To find the exact amount of oil remaining in the tank using an oil tank gauge you will need to use an electronic gauge or conduct a manual reading.
