So you want to know how much fuel is left in your storage tank. If your tank is cylindrical and is mounted vertically, no problem right? Simple geometry tells you that the volume of a cylinder is π * radius 2 * height [πr2h]. But what if your cylindrical tank is laying on its side? This is typical of underground fuel storage tanks. Calculating the total volume is no problem but what if you want to know how much fuel is in a partially filled tank? Use our handy little calculator and you will never have to wonder again.
