A fuelling method is described which comprises the steps of dispensing an initial quantity of fuel to a fuel tank, waiting for a predetermined settling period for the fuel dispensed to the fuel tank to homogenise and settle, after the predetermined settling period has elapsed, taking a fuel quantity reading using a fuel gauge associated with the fuel tank, calculating a differential volume of fuel between the fuel gauge reading and a desired final fuel quantity, and dispensing to the fuel tank a volume of fuel substantially equivalent to the differential volume using a dispensing apparatus including a fuel volume meter.
