In the fuel industry, as in any other, it is important to have control over the resources that directly generate profit. In the case of a petrol station this is a gasoline that passes a very complicated path from the terminal, through underground tank up to the tank inside the car. At most stages of its journey, the system can control the volume, height, temperature, the physical processes which is subjected to and based on this, predict its state. This is done by analysing the telemetry data and various types of flow models. In this paper we want to concentrate on one of the most difficult parts of this system. Difficult, because usually undocumented and invisible - a system of piping between the tank and the fuel distributor. Fuel that is located there, is usually beyond the observation of telemetry system and its volume changes over time. We want to focus on the nature of these changes and predict its impact on the balance of the fuel at the station.
