In the quest to manage costs many companies and farms make the decision to purchase a supply tank for their fleets. In the quest to manage costs many companies and farms make the decision to purchase a supply tank for their fleets.

Is it worth having a supply tank?
If you are thinking of purchasing a diesel fuel tank stay tuned, from now on we will address in the text some points that you must consider to make this decision.
The first step is to check the monthly fuel consumption of your fleet. Based on these data, do the math between filling up at an outsourced station or having your own supply tank.
Benefits of having a fuel oil tank
Fuel quality control
Having your own tanks to supply your fleet is possible to improve control against adulterated fuels, since you can choose and analyze the supplier’s certification. Remember that a fuel that is free of contamination or adulteration can guarantee the longevity of your machines.
Fuel consumption control
Having its own system to supply its machines generates greater consumption control and allows a more detailed assessment of the fleet’s performance, since all machines use the same fuel.
Control of operational supply costs
Having a fuel tank on your property or in your company generates fuel availability and speed 24 hours. In addition, it avoids travel costs by allowing machines to stay on production longer. Buying in large quantities of fuel oil can also generate savings when negotiating with suppliers.
Fuel contamination control
As we saw earlier, it is not possible to completely eliminate the presence of water and solid particles in diesel oil, but it is possible to control the levels of contamination with the installation of microfiltration and monitoring by oil analysis.
If you have had a supply tank for some time and don’t even have an extra filtration system, you should at least consider the need to periodically clean this tank.
Below you will find exclusive content on how to do this procedure.
Water separator filter in supply tank
As we have already published in another article, it is not possible to eliminate the presence of water in diesel oil, mas é possível controlar os níveis desta e de outras formas de contaminação. Among the ways of control is the installation of the so-called water separating filters. This type of filter can be installed next to the fuel pump or even in the lift tank supply system.

The permanent filtering in the supply, and the periodic cleaning of the tank bring benefits, respectively, such as:
- Increased fuel efficiency;
- Decrease in the exchange of fuel filters for machines and vehicles;
- Reduction in the need for maintenance of fuel injection nozzles and pumps.
What is the best model of fuel supply tank?
Among the supply tank models the most popular is the aerial tank. Installed above ground, this type of fuel oil tank is considered a safer alternative than underground tanks, as it allows easy access for monitoring inspections against leaks and corrosions. The ease of access also allows for practical storage and cleaning of the tank.
What standards and licenses are required for fuel oil storage?
After considering the economic issue and assessing your need for a fuel supply tank, look for information on environmental licenses and safety regulations for installing a system.See more information at this link.
Research the best fuel tank materials
It is also very important to research a good product. More and more companies that manufacture diesel storage tanks invest in research to develop new materials. Today, in addition to steel, it is also possible to find a polypropylene supply tank.
Conclusion about having a fuel oil supply tank
If you already have a supply tank for your fleet you can improve the performance of machines and equipment using filtering and oil analysis techniques
If you are still researching a supply tank, consider that there are a number of operational and economic benefits for those who decide to invest in their own fleet supply system. However, whether in the city or in the countryside, it is important to choose a good product and design a good installation project in compliance with environmental and safety standards.
