Meter Drift is a contributing source of variance in fueling systems that happens when components within the meter wear out overtime. As they wear the meters usually pump a slightly higher volume, frequently giving fuel away and eating into a fuel sites profits. If, instead, the meter drift results in less fuel being dispensed it could be exposing the gas station to fines for violating weights and measures standards.
Insite360 Advanced Variance Analysis (AVA) is a managed service that monitors fuel sites to continuously reconcile inventory and deliveries, identify instances and sources of fuel variance, and provide actionable recommendations to reduce loss.
The Insite360 FuelQuest managed services team has been working around the clock, 24/7 to support customers affected by the Colonial pipeline leak, which spilled between 6,000 and 8,000 barrels of fuel in Alabama earlier in September, prompting severe gas shortages in some southeastern states including Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
