What to Know Before Choosing a Fuel Tank

Today, we are going to answer the top questions we’re asked about fuel tanks and give you the correct information to help you decide which is best.

Quite frequently, we at Howard Energy are asked a lot of questions about whether or not to purchase a fuel tank and, if so, what kind. There are factors that go into the decision-making process for fuel tanks. Today, we are going to answer the top questions we’re asked about fuel tanks and give you the correct information to help you decide which fuel tank is the right one for your company. Read on to learn more!

Fuel Storage Hazards

The first thing you should be fully aware of is fuel storage and fuel dispensing hazards. Because of the possible risks, there are a lot of different regulations. Make sure you know what your local and national laws are before. We can guide you when you deal with knowledgeable fuel distributors like Howard Energy. Our knowledge and experience can help you decide if a stationary and permanent fuel tank or a portable one is best suited for your needs. If you are considering fixed tanks, then check with your local fire department for regulations, codes, and rules. With fuel storage, one of the hazards is diesel spills. The fines from the EPA can be steep, so knowing the liabilities and drawbacks of fuel storage is crucial. Make sure your entire staff is educated to prevent accidents.

Mobility and Capacity

Once you have educated yourself on correct compliance, consider how much fuel you will need to store for an entire month’s supply. This way, you won’t be overbuying and allowing fuel to sit too long. Consider whether you want a portable tank or an onsite tank. Large onsite tanks are the most cost-effective option if you are looking to save money and do not need portability. If you are going to move the tank to some different spots, consider how you’ll transport the tank. Do not get a big one to move or too small for your needs. Make sure if you’re moving the fuel that you are following the city or state’s laws and regulations for fuel storage.
