With Warren Rogers’ Advanced Continuous Reconciliation (CR) and “All-Points Monitoring System”, you get the most accurate and complete picture of your fuel operation — from every underground tank and fuel line, and dispenser, into your customers’ fuel tanks. This patented system features our real-time, continuous reconciliation technology and is ideal for high volume sites equipped with automatic tank gauging systems (ATG) and advanced dispenser pump controllers.
How it works
With the completion of every fueling transaction, a simultaneous observation of elapsed sales and associated tank system product heights and temperatures are recorded. CR identifies operational problems as they occur with pinpoint accuracy. It is also certified to provide the EPA leak detection /CITLDS monitoring for complex manifold tank systems up to 100,000 gallons in capacity. Learn more about our CR certification here.
This technology features:
*Quick Reference Precision Inventory Reconciliation for each fuel product.
*Precision ATG Tank Charting – A must for accurate inventory calculations. Many operators depend on the charting from the ATG, which may be inaccurate or change over time. Tilt and groundwater changes can affect the geometry of underground storage tanks dramatically. With Warren Rogers’ advanced services, we will rechart your tanks based on the precise movement between the tanks and dispensers in order to increase the accuracy of fuel variances, leak and loss detection. We can also make suggestions to the operator to update their tank charts or handle the change to the ATG for them.
*Inventory Variance Reporting (1%+130, MD, CT, NY reporting available) to meet state and federal regulations is also a benefit of our advanced analytical services. Know exactly where your tanks stand on variances and fully-automate your paperwork and fuel delivery auditing requirements. No longer count on basic ATG inventory and delivery readings for your loss analysis alone.
*Meter Drift Analysis– This is our patented method of identifying meters drifting away from strike and holding back or giving away product. Meter drift analysis reports can be provided for each dispenser position associated with a product to help you identify the financial impact that meter error is having on site profitability.
*Dispenser Flow Rate Analysis– This procedure calculates the dispenser flow rates for each position associated with that particular product. The purpose of dispenser flow rate analysis is to identify dispenser positions which are delivering products slowly to the customer due to clogged filters, defective flow arrestors, or inadequate turbine pump capacity. Recently, we have developed even more-advanced techniques and new reporting methods regarding flow rates to help petroleum retailers improve efficiency and profitability.
*Delivery Audit– We can identify the gross and net amounts of product that has been delivered to the tank system. This is critical information, because deliveries to retail facilities are not metered when product is introduced to the tank system. Our delivery audit provides a reliable measure of the actual amount of product delivered versus the bills of lading (BOL) that you receive.
Our delivery calculations also take factors such as temperature, tank geometry, and the quantity of elapsed sales during the delivery all into consideration in our findings, as these can all affect accuracy.
*Blend Ratio Verification– Product blending has become increasingly common as retail operators make every effort to optimize the use of existing tankage, reduce the costs of tank replenishment, and handle multiple grades and types of fuel.
Petroleum retailers have turned to product blending to create mid-grade gasoline and free up existing tankage for other products. Typically, dispenser blend ratios for gasoline are set to meet octane requirements. When the ratios at particular dispenser positions differ from the settings needed to meet octane standards, Warren Rogers pinpoints these occurrences by dispenser position and actual blending percentage.
Travel Center operators typically blend Biodiesel with conventional Diesel at each fueling facility. Biodiesel blending may consist of a transfer of Bio-Diesel into conventional diesel tanks during a delivery. Alternatively, Biodiesel can be injected into a trunk line while fuel dispensing is in progress. Regardless of the method, Warren Rogers monitors these blending operations accurately to ensure proper blend ratios are upheld and to maintain an audit of transfers for Biodiesel tax credit and state fuel tax purposes.

*Fuel Theft at the Dispenser– If a dispenser has been tampered with so that it will not record actual amounts of product withdrawn from the tank system, our advanced technology identifies and alerts you to these incidents by date, time, and amount. Warren Rogers has conducted extensive research in the area of theft and has identified the latest techniques used to steal fuel or tamper with equipment.
*Dispatch Planning– Warren Rogers’ Procurement Application is a secure, cloud-based solution that provides corporate logistics personnel and carriers with real-time tank levels, ullage amounts, and consumption forecasts. The Procurement application uses Warren Rogers DART technology to keep carriers off of your VPN and centrally administers their log-in credentials. The forecasting analysis relies upon historical sales data and is intuitively straightforward.
*Repair Validation– During a dispenser or automatic tank gauge repair at a facility, Warren Rogers can assess whether the repairs were effective or if additional work is needed. This ability to verify that a repair has been made and inform you that performance has been restored — in real-time, eliminates repair call-backs, increases efficiency, and saves you money.

At Warren Rogers, we focus on the above controllable issues as well as many others. With our online portal, fuelWRAp, and dedicated analyst support, operators can gain a 360-degree view of their forecourt performance. Our exception-based portal and reports are designed with the user in mind….cutting through the “data noise” and unnecessary graphics, report generation time, and page scrolls of other applications. We also provide you with the impact of dispenser downtime so that your maintenance department can prioritize their repairs based on revenue, profits, and impact to your customers.
fuelWRAp is also available on mobile, desktop, and tablet. Each one of the issues noted above can be detected and reported upon with fuelWRAp. You can learn more at www.warrenrogers.com. Ask for a demo today!
About Warren Rogers Associates
Founded in 1979 by Dr. Warren Rogers, Warren Rogers Associates pioneered the development of Statistical Inventory Reconciliation Analysis (SIRA) as a means of monitoring underground fuel tanks and associated lines. SIRA was certified in accordance with EPA requirements and has been used by petroleum marketers for more than thirty years to provide UST leak detection compliance. Warren Rogers also invented Continual Inventory Reconciliation Analysis (CIRA) for fuel management, which has become the industry standard.
Today, Warren Rogers specializes in statistical analysis and precision fuel system diagnostics for the retail petroleum industry. The Warren Rogers system is fully deployed in the cloud to provide customers with real-time access to fueling data anytime and anyplace. Recent initiatives include the deployment of a secure procurement application for delivery forecasting and product dispatch, the development of KPI Measures of the financial impact of tank system maintenance activities, and advanced delivery audit. In addition, all Warren Rogers solutions are PCI compliant and eliminate any reliance upon the use of a customer’s VPN for access to store devices. Warren Rogers holds numerous U.S., European and Canadian patents for these applications.
