Some stations carry fuels like liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas, or kerosene. In recent times, filling stations have added shops to their primary business and convenience stores are now a familiar sight alongside pumps.
However malpractices observed in managing the organization where money in form of cash, passes through many hands before getting to the final destination (highest in command) are at least reduced if not eliminated if this system is adopted. It is worthy to highlight here that this system helps to guide the manager on what to do and how to do it, achieving maximum sanitation and transparency in the corporation, while increasing the team spirit in the workers through bonus incentives and allowances made available to them.

In the existing System, the petroleum stations has manual dipping which is unsuitable process for modern forecourt, because of the time wasting, and also it expose site staff to potential harmful hydrocarbon vapors and also places them in a high risk environment.
So also due to manual recording, pumps reading are tempered with, fraud is a common incident because in most cases the earnings for the days are kept in the office till the following morning or until it can be transferred to the bank.
1.2 AIM AND OBJECTIVES
The aim of this project isto design an interface that will simulate the underground tank to confirm if there is still available fuel in the tankor not and also to keep record of all sales in the filling stations.
Objectives of this project work are as follows;
• To design an application that will keep track of the new product or the number of liters of petroleum supplied to the filling station.
• To simulate a systemthat will monitor underground tank process.
• To create a database that will keep record of daily transaction of the filling station.
1.3 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The project work will help companies cut expenses by minimizing the amount of unnecessary part and production shortage. It also helps distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers to optimize their warehouse. Also help manufacturers, to see and understand the condition and level of stock control.
1.4 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The scope of this study is limited; the data collected covers only the Shema Filling station, Kawo, Kaduna. Thisproject will cover all the aspect of transaction in Shema Filling station, monitor the availability of petroleum in the underground tank.
