As fuel price continues to rise and retail sales of fuel decrease, the profits of gas station owners will continue to decline if they cannot accurately identify and manage fuel loss and meet compliance requirements. For site owners who operate small and medium-sized gas stations, it is even harder to survive in the increasingly fierce competition with big and franchised station owners if they do not stop fuel loss. Many factors and links can lead to the loss of fuel in a service station due to the special physical and chemical properties and storage methods. Accurate analysis and management of every link of fuel dispatch, sales volume and inventory will prevent losses at every node as far as possible, and use scientific means to find out the causes of loss, and then take effective measures to reduce loss and increase efficiency. Based on the practical case of Anzhenmen Gas Station in Beijing, this paper analyzes the physical and chemical characteristics of fuel and the logistics process involving fuel dispatch, sale and inventory of fuel to find out all the elements that caused the incompliance of wet stock. The author helped site owner generate an accurate fuel chart for underground tanks with mathematical modeling algorithm, which improves the precision of metering management of dispatch, sale and inventory, provides reference for the owner of gas station to stop leakage and check mistakes, and greatly improves the profits. The author hopes to use this method to help more gas station owners improve fuel compliance management.
