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.
In a recent analysis of over 75,000 fuel invoices, invoices in error showed an average variance of $1,123. This averages out to $281 per load, or an error of 3.74 cents per gallon for a 7,500 gallon average load.
A regional bulk fueling company with a throughput of roughly 80,000 gallons daily was experiencing significant product losses and shrinkage. Their operation included over 20 fuel tanks and a fleet of 25 bulk fuel trucks and 50 transports. All their plant’s meters and trucks were equipped with mechanical registers, and old gauges were still installed on their fuel tanks.
