Easily Monitor Heating Oil Levels

The OEM Rocket Wireless Fuel Level Monitor lets users keep track of the amount of heating oil remaining in their storage tank. The transmitter mounts to the oil tank. It uses ultrasonic waves to detect the amount of oil remaining in the tank and communicates with a receiver in the home. The receiver must be powered through a standard electrical outlet. It may be placed up to 150 feet away from the transmitter (which is shaped like a rocket and has a battery life of over a decade). The receiver displays oil amounts in 10% increments, with a warning when the tank falls below 10% capacity.

This system puts an end to the need for trips to a cold basement or treks through snow to monitor remaining fuel visually. It’s also more accurate. Visit for more information.
