Read on if you’d like to learn more!
Fuel Storing Hazards
One thing you need to know about is fuel dispensing hazards and fuel storage. Due to potential risks, there are different regulations to follow. Make sure you know what the national and local laws are before you get into this. We can help guide you when you deal with well-known fuel distributors such as Howard Energy. Our experience and knowledge could help you decide if stationary or permanent fuel tanks or portable ones best fit your business needs. Check the local fire department for rules, codes, and regulations if you’re considering fixed tanks. With fuel storage, one hazard to keep in mind are diesel spills. The fines from the EPA can be very steep, so knowing the liabilities and also the drawbacks of your fuel storage method is paramount. Make sure the entire staff is educated to prevent further accidents.
Capacity and Mobility Features
Once you’ve educated yourself on the correct compliance, consider how much gas you’ll need to store for a month’s worth of supply. This way, you will not be over-purchasing and allowing the fuel to sit out too long. Think about whether you want a portable tank or a tank onsite. Big onsite tanks are the most cost-effective choice if you’re looking to save some real cash and don’t need portability. If you’re going to move your tank to other areas, think about how you’ll move it. Don’t purchase a big one to move or too small for your business needs. If you are moving the fuel, ensure you are following your state or city’s laws and regulations for storing fuel.
