Which Diesel Tank?
Diesel fuel storage tanks have come a long, long way from simply consisting of a single skin metal tank precariously balanced on blocks, attached to a flexible hose and trigger nozzle. Today’s range of diesel storage and fuel dispensing tanks are brimming with the very latest fuel storage and delivery technology, thereby ensuring compliance with the most demanding regulations and requirements.
All static diesel fuel tanks supplied by TankDepot.co.uk have been engineered from the outset to ensure full compliance with all current and envisaged fuel storage requirements, including:
The optimum fuel tank for any diesel storage application, will be dependent upon:
The number of vehicles being refuelled on an ongoing basis
The type of vehicle which is being refuelled
The frequency of refuelling
The table below provides a summary of how many times a selection of vehicles can be filled from each model in the TankDepot.co.uk range.
Please note however that vehicle fuel tank capacities may vary from model to model and manufacturer to manufacturer. Therefore, the values below should only be considered as estimates.

Additionally, it is worth giving consideration to buying a slightly larger fuel tank than may be required. This allows you to stock up with diesel when prices are lower and extends the period between refills.
Mobile Diesel Dispensing Fuel Tanks
For mobile Diesel storage and dispensing, TankDepot.co.uk now offers a range of purpose designed, 'Truckmaster
' type Diesel fuel dispensing Tanks.
Please note whilst these tanks must be placed within a suitably bunded area when used as static storage and dispensing tanks and where tank capacity exceeds 200 litres.
