Radiofrequency method for measurement of liquefied petroleum gas mass under overload from gas tank trucks into tanks of automotive gas-filling stations and gas-holders is considered. Experience of application of radiofrequency measurement system SU-5D-MASS for mass measurement of various liquids and gas condensates under their storage in reservoirs and pumping through pipelines is taken into account. Optimization of measurement system is suggested implying equipment of 1–2 gas tank-cars by Coriolis flow-meters and radiofrequency sensor of liquefied petroleum gas mass in the tank of a gas tank-car while other gas tank-cars are equipped only such a mass sensor. New approach of calibration of tanks of gas tank trucks and automotive gas-filling stations is suggested.
