Question by That_ blue_ eyed_ Irish_ lass: I want to measure the home heating oil in my tank Does anyone know where I can buy a measuring stick for this?
My dad had one of these”sticks” . They had inches carved on them like a ruler and you would stick it in the oil tank and it would measure the amount of inches left in the tank.
It’s just like a big ruler.
I remember 10 inches was approximatly 50 gallons .
If any one knows where I can purchase one please reply here. Thanks
Duh! My brain was just not thinking today! My hubby wants this ruler and frankly I just forgot about making my own.. Thanks for the directions all!

Just buy a 1″ x 2″ peice of lumber and transfer the markings from a tape measure onto it.
8′ long should be more than enough.
