Many airport fueling operations can benefit from the elimination of human error that comes with the traditional manual ticketing process where fuel transactions take place. By installing Veeder-Root’s EMR3 electronic meter registers, Datalink wireless data capture solution, and TLS-450PLUS automatic tank gauges, fixed-base operators (FBO’s) can more efficiently manage custody transfers and inventory reconciliation.
Whether you are measuring inventory by dipping tanks or with an automatic tank gauge, the stick or probe measurements are only as good as the tank chart that you reference when calculating the ullage. While tank charts do not cause a loss of fuel, an inaccurate tank chart will affect inventory and delivery data collected and could contribute to masking actual fuel losses.
Ethanol is on the rise, and subsequently so is phase separation. Over 90% of U.S. gas stations are blending their gasoline with ethanol, and the number is only rising.
There are more than 568,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) at 202,000 sites across the United States that are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) technical regulations. Of these, nearly 27% are not in significant operational compliance with either release prevention or leak detection requirements.
A large c-store and fuel retailer with hundreds of sites was facing increased competition as other retailers opened locations in close proximity to key sites. To jumpstart business and build a foundation for growth, new leadership was brought in to streamline processes and eliminate waste throughout the organization’s fueling operations.
Daylight Savings Time starts on Sunday, November 6, 2016. To keep your reporting as accurate as possible, don’t forget to configure Daylight Savings on your automatic tank gauge (ATG) as the clock turns backward one hour.
Veeder-Root is pleased to announce FREE two-day in-person training courses for service technicians to become certified on TLS-450PLUS, TLS4i, TLS4c, TLS-450, and TLS-350 consoles. At the conclusion of the course, technicians will receive a Veeder-Root ATG Certification.

On July 15, 2015, the US EPA finalized changes to the 1988 Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulation in 40 CFR part 280 and 281. Included in these changes are modifications to permitted overfill protection devices which impacted new and repaired equipment installations starting on October 13, 2015. Additionally, the EPA has added periodic operation and maintenance requirements for overfill prevention equipment to help ensure the equipment is operating properly and will activate before a UST is overfilled.
