What to Ask Alexa

You can ask Alexa various questions about your oil tank. Since your Smart Oil Gauge takes readings all throughout the day, it knows quite a bit about your heating oil consumption!

Start off by saying: “Alexa, ask Smart Oil Gauge how much oil we have”.

Then, once Alexa answers, follow-up with: “When will we need oil next?”

Alexa will give you an estimated countdown of days until you’ll be at a quarter of a tank and therefore due for a fill-up.

With the Smart Oil Gauge skill linked, you can ask Alexa how much oil you have or when you’ll need oil next.
