Supplies in August were 22.500t (59%), compared with 23.901t (89%) in July. In absolute numbers they are the same, although the percentage is lower. I also have a report from an Italian friend showing the receipts by port for August and 71% of the fuel is sent to Tobruk, rest in Benghazi.
Getting the fuel to N.Africa is not the same as getting the supplies to the front.
