What is MyTankGauge?
MyTankGauge is an affordable
solution for making gas station inventory and compliance information
available from the web. MyTankGauge has a solution for your existing
equipment that provides you with web-based fuel and compliance management.
We turn the Automatic Tank Gauges that
are present in nearly every gas station into Internet enabled devices.
MyTankGauge allows you to:
- Monitor in-tank inventory in near real-time
Be notified automatically when an alarm occurs via e-mail and/or
- Clear alarms from the web
Eliminate keeping leak test result printouts at the station.
We archive the leak test results and keep an exact copy of all
of the information that is contained on the printout. You can
view and print these results from the web.
Make Compliance Forms available from the web. Any forms that
are required to be kept on file can be stored and made easily
accessible from the website. Examples of forms that can be kept
on file for you include: Annual Monitoring System Certification
Forms; UST Monitoring Site Plan Forms; Unauthorized Release Forms;
Which MyTankGauge connection is the best?
This depends on what equipment you already
have at your site. We will work around your existing equipment to
help you meet your needs with minimal expenses.
- Ethernet connection is preferable for reliability and cost. Available port on router is necessary.
- Phone connection is available if no internet service is available. A dedicated line is not necessary, it can be shared with a fax line.
Shared phone line - MyTankGauge uses the phone for about
a minute each time it dials out. Dial out times can be specified
from one minute to once a day depending on how up-to-date you
want your information and how often you want your phone tied up.

Who has access to my site information?
You determine who has access
to your site data. For example, you can allow limited access to
your dispatcher so that they can monitor in-tank product and know
when a delivery needs to be made. Or, you could allow limited access
to your maintenance company and have them alerted automatically
when an alarm occurs.
The system is very flexible
and can be customized by you. You can give access to one user for
one site, 100 users for one site, or one user for 1000 sites. In
other words, any configuration is possible. Each company will have
an administrator in charge of assigning user ID's and passwords.
Your administrator can add and remove users from this website in
whatever way suits your company's needs.
How can I be sure that my data is secure?
Our site is operated on a
secure server and your data is in a secure database. We are using
the latest technologies in database and web security, however, it
will be important for your administrator to use his/her best discretion
in assigning user ID's and passwords. If a question or problem every
does arise, we do keep an access log that provides us with information
regarding who and when the site was accessed. Also, our database
and website is backed up no less than every 24 hours.
How much will my phone line be tied up?
Not very much. Typically,
MyTankGauge takes about 1 minute to send its information. This means

as often as every 30 minutes. There is no extra cost for frequency of updates, it is simply up to you how often you want your information
