Split Compartment Deliveries
The Institute of Petroleum published these guidelines in December 2001 detailing procedures for splitting the delivery of the contents of a road tanker compartment between different storage tanks at petrol filling stations. The procedures minimise the risk of vapour emissions other than from the service station vent pipe.

Warm Fuel
Deliveries of warm fuel to service stations, and the consequential “loss” of product is an emotive issue. Misconceptions abound, and popular myth overtakes scientific fact when discussing the expansion and contraction of fuel with temperature changes.

If you want to get the facts behind temperature compensation, then this comprehensive report is essential reading.
