Abstract: To all car drivers out there, going to the petrol stations every week to refuel is a breeze, thanks to the ability of petrol pumps to accurately measure the amount of fuel pumped. We never have to worry about being short changed or paying more than we should for the amount pumped into our tanks because the figures are shown in black and white on the fuel dispensers themselves. This simple concept has been a part of our daily lives since before we knew it. This is the essence of the topic on MFMs and how it can help Singapore continue to be a top bunkering hub in the world. This topic is highly controversial and it revolves around a thought in many people’s minds: The Cappuccino Effect – is it a myth or a reality. The first part of the report will explain the bunkering processes and ways to determine presence of entrained air in the bunker fuel. The second part of the report will explain how the MFMs work differently from current quantity measurement methods and how it helps to solve the problem of Cappuccino bunkers. Finally, the report will explore the truth behind the reason why such a great piece of technology is yet to be widely used, gathering information from various industry players. This report is purely for academic studies and does not represent any of the organizations mentioned.
