Have you been considering the use of a diesel storage tank for your commercial company or farm? One of the biggest benefits of diesel tanks is their fuel efficiency. In this blog we take a closer look at the importance of diesel tanks for fuel efficiency.

The benefits of a good diesel storage tank are numerous.

1. Save space and increase safety

If you’re currently bulk buying fuel but don’t have a diesel storage tank then you are likely surrounded by diesel barrels which are unsightly and take up a large amount of space. Not only that but they are certainly not the most efficient or safest method of fuel storage. By investing in a diesel tank you will reduce the space taken up for your fuel storage as well as increase safety as our tanks have a strong precast outer shell, steel door and 3 point locking system. Fuel theft is a real threat to any business or farm who buys fuel in bulk. With safe and secure storage tanks this will become a fear of the past.

2. Save money

Buying your fuel in bulk generally reduces its costs. By having an onsite storage tank you can store between 2,500 gallons and 5,000 gallons of fuel at one time depending on your needs. Reducing the requirement for multiple fuel deliveries, again reducing the need for unsightly and unsafe diesel barrels lying around and providing you with the cost saving that comes with buying in bulk.

What to consider when choosing a tank

When choosing a tank there are a few things to take into consideration.

  • What is your average fuel consumption?
  • Do you have a fleet of trucks and vans that require large amounts of fuel?
  • Do you have farm equipment that needs to be quickly refueled during peak seasons?

These considerations will guide your choice of diesel storage tank.


For commercial purposes such as companies that use HGV’s we recommend the use of our large capacity 5,000 litre tanks. This will help cut down on fuel spend for the year, travel costs of frequent refueling or deliveries of fuel. This will also allow for the safe storage and preservation of fuel quality.


In general fuel tanks required for farming can be of a smaller capacity such as out 2,500 litre tank. It’s vital for farmers to have access to a reliable fuel source during peak seasons of spring and summer in particular. Our tanks allow for the safe storage of diesel allowing farmers to buy in bulk without storage issues, the risk of theft of the degradation that comes with barrel storage.
