We've created a calculator that estimates the liquid level of a known volume in a cylindrical tank by users request /1837/. Comments were taken into account and the task has been complicated - we added tank tilt angle. For horizontally lying tank, simply set the angle to zero.

Digits after the decimal point: 2
Liquid level
 
Distance between liquid level measurement place and nearest base. (0 if level is measured right near the base).

The calculator uses this Tilted cylindrical tank volume calculation algorithm, the liquid level is detected iteratively using the bisection method.
