How to Read a Heating Oil Tank Gauge in MA

Reading a fuel tank is something anyone can do. Don’t be intimidated! Just follow these three simple steps to reading your fuel level and you’ll be an expert before you know it.

  1. Approach the oil tank. They are usually stored in the basement of your home. If your tank happens to be outside, be sure to clear snow and debris from the area and off the tank.
  2. Find the small glass cylinder or dial on top of the tank. The gauge will show a small marker according to how full your tank is. It can be at any of the following levels: Full, ¾, ½, ¼, or Empty.
  3. If your tank is at or below ¼, it’s time to place your oil order! Deliveries can take up to a few days, so you don’t want to wait any longer or you’ll risk a fuel runout.

Pro Tip: Reading an oil gauge is just like reading the gas gauge in your car! Keep this handy trick in mind while inspecting the fuel level of your tank.
