Many Canadian fuel site operators are familiar with this painful truth: temperature has a profound effect on fueling operations, often causing retailers fuel inventory management headaches. Thankfully, manufacturers are beginning to develop tank gauging solutions specifically designed to limit these headaches. Advancements in line leak detection and phase separation detection are two such examples.
