Consider the following when selecting tank capacity.
Can I get a discount on full truck loads of fuel
What is a “full load” ? (7-10,000 gallons)
What is your throughput (usage) ?
How long does it take to get fuel delivered ?
5% is lost in the top of the tank on overfill prevention
5% is lost from the bottom as the pump is set above the water and debris zone
Is the fuel going to sit for more than 6 months ? (Consider using additives)
Codes can limit single tank capacity. Variances must be sought for larger tanks.
Single Compartment vs. Dual Compartment
You can split the tank into separate compart-ments for multiple products.
Example: A 12,000 Gallon tank with 4,000 Galons Offroad Diesel and 8,000 Gallons Onroad Diesel.
A second dispensing platform can provide multiple fueling positions.
Two products can be dispensed on one end with a dual product dispenser.
Combinations can be suited to need.
Internal Tank Lining
A standard tank is bare steel. A corrosion inhibiting internal lining can be installed.
This option is almost always selected on Jet Fuel.
A good liner is expensive as the tank is welded on the inside and the finish blasted to prepare for
the application of the coating. Internal corrosion is a problem if water bottoms are not removed.
A water sumping system is also available.
We often do custom pump systems for bottom loading trucks,
transferring fuel to multiple remote dispensers, etc.
Please ask a sales engineer about anything special.
We offer several fuel management system solutions from unattended retail credit card to fleet keys,
pin numbers, buying clubs, etc. We will also pre-install a customer supplied proprietary systems.
