Make three storage tanks: light oil, heavy and petroleum. Connect each one to circuit grid. Each tank has 25k max.I now need to understand the circuit network system so I can balance out the oil refineries between their output of petroleum, heavy and light oil, that's going to be fun.
If heavy > 20k, run heavy-to-light cracking.
If light > 10k, run light-to-solid.
If light > 20k, run light-to-petgas.
Also https://wiki.factorio.com/Oil_processing has info about ratios. IIRC, 8 adv oil refineries need 2 heavy-to-light chem plants and 7 light-to-gas to convert everything to petgas, but you better check.
