Fuel storage onsite can be a difficult issue. Generally speaking, onsite storage is a better, simpler, and much cheaper, option for those who use large amounts of fuel for their business. When you’re trying to decide on fuel storage tanks, however, it’s worthwhile to do some research and thinking about your needs in advance.
When you’re looking for fuel tanks for sale, you can find yourself looking at a lot of options. Too many, in fact, for an instant decision. You need to narrow down your choices.
The major issues for onsite fuel storage are:
• The amount of fuel you need to have on hand. Large fuel storage tanks deliver useful values in terms of both capacity and cost. Smaller fuel tanks are easier to put in some locations, though.
• Site access – Where’s the best place for you to take on fuel onsite? Do you have an easy in/fill up/out access point?
• Site safety – This is “location, location, location!” taken to a whole new level and includes your choice of size of fuel tank.
If all this is obvious in theory, it’s usually not quite so straightforward in practice onsite. Given the criteria above, on a large site, you may opt for one or two major holding tanks and several smaller, but easily accessible tanks where you need them, for example. (The extra dollar values kick in at this point. Your big holding tanks give you the lower price; the smaller tanks add onsite convenience and efficiency.)
You also need to see a range of new, modern fuel tanks to really get a good sense of what’s possible when purchasing. There’s a company called, appropriately enough, Fuel Storage Tanks Inc.com in Texas which is perhaps the best single showcase of fuel storage tanks in the country. This is an excellent range of tanks, and they also supply all the accessories, mounts, and fittings as well.
