Maintenance of the metered system is our problem, not yours. All metered systems
are under a controlled, preventive maintenance program. Once a metered system is
installed, we assume responsibility and any expense involved in keeping the tank,
meter, and regulating equipment on the tank in proper operating condition.
We fill the tank when we install it and continue to re-fill it regularly on a route
basis. You never have to pay to fill the tank. You only pay for the gas you use, after
you use it. You never have to invest money in gas to give yourself a "comfort level" -
we provide it for you.
