Hi everybody first time post and looking forward to building my first project.
I use an oil burning furnace at my home to heat hot water and run baseboard heat. During the summer months the furnace only runs to heat hot water of course. I'm wanting to build a project that would measure the amount of oil that would flow into the burner and measure how long the burner is turned on, log it to the computer for review to do a cost analyst to see if it's worth my effort to install an electric hot water heater and shut the furnace off during the summer months.
This is my first project any guidance on what flow meter would be capatible and any other hints would be appreciatted.
