Abstract The paper deals with two issues. It first estimates the standard deviation of a stick reading and ten uses that value in calculating an average error associated with a static tank test under a variety of scenarios. The error in the measured leak rate that results from the sticking error is computed for two tank sizes (500 and 1000 gallons (gal.)) under a variety of filling conditions and assuming a variety of forms of the static tank test. The paper then recommends a particular form of the static tank test based on consideration of the error in the estimated leak rate and the practicalities of the test.
