Some oil tanks have a tank gage that can help estimate the amount of oil in your tank, but the best method is to stick your tank. This means taking a clean stick, such as a yardstick or broom handle and dipping it into your tank. You then can use a heating oil tank measurement chart to convert the number of inches of oil on the stick to an approximate number of gallons of oil in your tank.
