51:9-5. Measuring quantities between 50 and 10,000 gallons; exceptions
Each sale or delivery of liquid fuel exceeding 50 gallons but not exceeding 10,000 gallons shall be measured by means of a positive displacement liquid flow meter which has been tested and sealed as to its adjusting and recording elements by any weights and measures official; but this section shall not apply to liquid fuel sold in barrels or other containers upon which the quantity in terms of liquid measure is plainly and conspicuously marked, to liquid fuel sold to be delivered by the entire railroad tank car or cargo direct from the vessels, boats, or railroad tank cars or bulk tank trucks or compartments thereof containing the same to 1 destination and consigned to 1 person and accepted by the purchaser on the original bill of lading or invoice as proof of measurement or weight, or to the sale or delivery of liquid fuel which the State Superintendent of Weights and Measures determines does not by reason of its viscosity or other condition lend itself to metered measurement.
