An ATG - also known as an automatic tank gauge or automatic tank monitor - is a piece of equipment that is installed at a gas station. A tank gauge is connected to a series of sensors and probes that monitor the underground storage tanks for leaks, volume, and testing associated with environmental compliance.
Most retailers use an automatic tank gauge for three things:
Checking fuel levels Monitoring leak detection alarms Printing environmental compliance records
These days, most modern retailers connect their automatic tank gauge to the Internet in order to manage all that data digitally. If it’s not connected to the Internet, a tank monitor is only useful for someone at the store.
