What is “Weights and Measures” proving of a diesel or gas pump?

August 17, 2016 By ,

How do you know our meter tickets are accurate?  Because we  must certify they are accurate to an Oregon State Department of Agriculture Inspector.

Sometimes our customers ask about how we calibrate or test our Weights and Measures Certified meters here at Star Oilco.  Below is a YouTube video of the process and what is done.  This is the process to confirm the accuracy of commercial fuel pumps in the United States.

We must prove every meter we use to sell to our customers with on an annual basis. Oregon’s Weights and Measures goes to every one of our cardlock, retail gas stations, and into our yard to check every member of our fleet used to dispense fuel to customers.
