Zero In on the Right Fuel Tank

Fuel has long been recognized as a precious resource, and many vehicle-heavy businesses or organizations know how crippling a shortage can be. At the same time, these businesses emphasize the importance of being able to stash copious amounts as the situation dictates. This calls for buying fuel tanks from sellers of automotive dealer supplies, but how do you pick the tank with the most appropriate volume capacity?

Some fuel experts recommend reviewing your company/organization’s operations and determine the regular level of fuel consumption among all vehicles. This will help give you an idea of the volume of tankage. Your preferred dealer will have tank models ranging from 250 gallons to 20,000 gallons. Consult the National Fire Protection Association and your state authorities for the relevant fuel-storage regulations.

Take the time to measure your prospective fuel tanks and evaluate the expected storage areas in your fuel farm. Your survey can also give ideas on your fuel handling options and potential safety precautions.


Fuel tanks, no matter the size tend to be targets for pilferage the second they become active at your fuel farm. Plan ahead on security measures when the supplier is scheduled to deliver the tanks and install them with the necessary equipment.
