Bunded Fuel Tank Buyer’s Guide

Bunded Fuel Tank Buyer's Guide


So you need a fuel storage solution, and you have wisely decided to go for a bunded tank. The benefits are obvious; not only are bunded tanks much more environmentally friendly than their plastic counterparts (complying to those all important regulations), they are also more secure – protecting your considerable fuel investment and giving you you peace of mind that your site will not be an easy target for thieves. This article covers some of the things you should consider when choosing which tank to buy, and will help you find the tank that is right for you and right for the job.


Bunded Fuel Tanks Capacity: 700 litre - 120,000 litre

One of the most obvious considerations when buying a tank is how much fuel you require it to hold. At UK Bunded Fuel Tanks we offer an entire range of capacities, from 700 litres all the way up to a massive 120,000 litres. We find that it is better to order a slightly larger tank than you anticipate you need – although this is a bit more expensive in the short term, having spare capacity allows you to be flexible with your needs without having to buy a whole new tank. Whatever size you choose you can rest assured that your tank is being exactingly crafted to the highest standards by industry leading experts, and will exceed your expectations in quality and workmanship.

Protect your bunded fuel tank with high quality security features

Protecting Your Tank

Now you have chosen the right tank for you, don’t forget to take precautions against theft. Choosing a high quality lockable steel tank was a good start, so make sure to use strong padlocks, particularly ones resistant to bolt cutters. Try to choose a site for your tank that is not visible to passers by, but still easy to keep an eye on, preferably with security lights to act as a deterrent. Finally, consider installing an oil level gauge and tank alarm to alert you when the fuel level drops suddenly.

Delivery And Installation

Once you have chosen the perfect tank at the right size for your needs, there is the not inconsiderable task of getting it to your site and installing it in a way that meets government regulations for fuel storage.

Conduct regular inspections of your bunded fuel tank

Now your tank is up and running and meeting all your needs, remember to take some simple steps to keep it that way. Take the time to regularly inspect your tank for signs of wear and damage. Check that the tank is not warped or leaking, and that the space between the inner and outer tank is free of debris. All of our tanks are built to the highest specification from industry leading materials, so with proper care they will last you a lifetime. However, if you do discover signs of degradation or any other issue, contact us immediately for a tank inspection – we will ensure that your tank is taken care of.
