Wireless Oil Tank Monitors
Is Your Oil Company Spying on You to increase profits? Wireless oil tank monitors promise you to "Never Run Out of Oil Again". While this is possible (not 100% true) but most of them are fairly accurate. I think it's a good thing for customers to have so they can monitor their own oil tank, but having an oil company monitoring your oil tank via a WiFi oil tank monitor or LTE tank monitor so they can use it as a marketing tool for their own gain is NOT what C.O.D or "will call" customers need.
If you sign up with an oil company and allow them to track your fuel tank with a wireless oil tank monitor, you are not only increasing their profits, you are also reducing your chances to shop for the best price or limit yourself to a single oil company. If you order heating oil on a C.O.D basis, then shopping the market is the most important reason for buying COD oil.
Oil companies can monitor your tank and schedule your oil delivery when it's convenient for them instead of what's best for your schedule.
Ordering Cash Oil or Credit Card via Codfuel.com or local newspapers has always been about customer choice and convenience; to order oil and have it delivered on your terms.
Some wireless oil tank monitors are good to have and can help you monitor your oil tank without allowing an oil company to track your tank and put you into their "sales funnel" to "lock" you into their company. From my experience, C.O.D consumers do not want to be tracked and locked into a single oil company. If they wanted that, they could sign a contract with a full service provider at a higher price. These monitors remove the ability for consumers to shop and compare oil prices.
There are other WiFi tank monitors available on Amazon or Home Depot that do the same job as wireless oil tank monitors without the monthly fees and without the intrusive customer tracking. There's an added bonus if you have Amazon's Alexa, you simply just ask Alexa how much oil you have!

This is only one of several wireless tank monitors homeowners can choose without oil company tracking. Our only interest is consumer safety and privacy. Codfuel.com has been all about consumers safety since inception 17 years ago)
For example: Let's say your oil tank is down to 1/4, but you are not ready to order oil at the moment. You want to shop around for the best company or the lowest oil price, plus you need to make sure your tank will be able to fit a 200 gallon delivery so you get the best price. You may want to wait another week or so before ordering. You also want to check oil prices from various other dealers on Codfuel.com or your local newspaper. In addition, you want to see if there are any coupons available.
This is why we buy oil on the C.O.D market; we want the best deal we can and choose the oil dealer that fits into OUR schedule. By utilizing a wireless oil tank monitor with dealer tracking, you eliminate consumer choice and have a single company texting you and pressuring you to order oil on their terms. it defeats the purpose of buying COD oil.
Nothing is more accurate and "private" than sticking your tank and using the heating oil tank chart below to see how much oil you have. Wireless tank monitors are NOT 100% accurate. Please use it only as a device to give you an approximate amount of oil in your tank.
