Why calibrate your meters? Many site owners and operators ask this question and many believe that the periodic testing completed by a state official is all that is needed. Unfortunately, this belief can lead to profit loss, unhappy customers and poorly maintained meters that may require costly repairs in the future. And since state officials may not visit a site annually, there is time for meters to become grossly inaccurate, shorting the customers of fuel, or giving away fuel that was not paid for.
If eight out of 24 meters at a station with average throughput are inaccurately calibrated, they stand to give away 1,384 gallons of gas over 12 months. At an average price of $3.10/gallon (Jan. 2015), that equals a loss of $4,290! Can you afford to absorb a loss this great each year? The most effective way to avoid this problem is to have your meters calibrated on a regular basis. The smallest incremental change in a meter can result in losses that may grow exponentially. This quick and easy, preemptive and low-cost measure ensures accurate fuel delivery.
