Section 51:9-7 - Delivery Tickets; Duplicates; Contents
51:9-7. Delivery tickets; duplicates; contents
A delivery ticket and duplicate thereof shall be issued upon the completion of delivery of each sale or delivery of liquid fuel exceeding 10 gallons. If the sale or delivery exceeds 50 gallons and is of a type of liquid fuel which is required to be measured by meter, the ticket shall be printed by means of an automatic printing device attached to and co-ordinated with the operating mechanism of a meter approved for the measurement of liquid fuels pursuant to the provisions of this chapter. On each ticket there shall be distinctly and legibly expressed the date, the name and address of the seller, the name and address of the purchaser, the number of gallons sold or delivered, the grade of liquid fuel, and the signature of the person making such sale or delivery or his agent. One of such tickets shall be given to the purchaser and the other shall be retained by the seller for a period of 1 year, such retained tickets being subject to inspection by any weights and measures official. Delivery tickets shall be serially numbered. No duplicate or retained ticket shall be destroyed but may be voided and kept on file.
The provisions of this section shall not apply where there is a meter permanently attached and properly security sealed in the consuming apparatus of the consumer with the recording elements always available to him. In this situation, in lieu of a delivery ticket, there shall be rendered to the consumer by the seller a periodical statement of the amount of fuel delivered to him as indicated on the meter attached to his consuming apparatus. On notice to the seller a consumer may at any time elect to discontinue use of a meter attached to his consuming apparatus and to receive delivery tickets as in this section provided.
