Remote Readout

The display of the results of a liquid fuel transaction at a point removed from the actual place where the transaction occurred. In a self-service station, a motorist fills a tank at a dispenser, where the number of gallons dispensed, and the total price, is displayed. Simultaneously, this same information is being displayed inside the station at the cashier’s position. The inside display is a remote readout.

Sophisticated in-tank monitoring equipment is also capable of transmitting gallonage data to marketing offices miles away. The data collected there is another form of remote readout.
