How does this heating oil tank gauge work?

The oil tank sight gauge works using the gravity effect on fluids to give visual representation of the tank level. This heating oil tank gauge uses either a push or pull to read button or handle to only open the valve until the fluid level has settled. When you let go of the button or handle it goes back to a closed position. This means that next time a level needs to be taken the button or handle needs to be activated again. However, when checking the heating oil thank level the sight gauge valve has to be naturally closed to ensure against leaks in case the tube is damaged.

Can I use an oil tank sight gauge on a plastic heating oil tank?

The simple answer is yes you can. When installing the oil tank sight gauge on a plastic tank that has a recessed outlet point you will have to fit an extension before the sight gauge to bring the tube flush with the outside of the tank, so it doesn’t bend around the outside of the tank.

What is the difference between push button and royal oil tank sight gauge?

Both oil tank sight gauges, use a similar principle of measuring the tank level but the Royal model is more advanced thanks to its additional features. It comes with an integrated mesh filter and an isolation valve so the gauge can be serviced without draining the tank.

How accurate are oil tank sight gauges?

This oil tank sight gauge/ oil tank float gauge is cost effective and provide a good ideation of the content levels, but it is not as accurate as some of the more sophisticated tank gauges. If a higher level of accuracy is desired you might need to consider some of our more advanced models such as Unitel gauge suitable for both diesel fuel and oil heating, Piusi Ocio fuel tank gauge perfect solution for diesel and Apollo oil heating tank gauge for heating oil.
