How Does a Diesel Tank Work?

Generally, a diesel dispensing tank works on the principle that the diesel is stored in a bunded or double skin tank to comply with regulations. To dispense the diesel from the tank, a pump with a suction pipe is inserted into the tank and then sucks up the diesel and dispenses it through a hose and nozzle into your vehicle or an other tank.

 

Can you have a diesel tank at home?

Yes you can but the regulations apply to up to 3,500 litre storage only.  The guidance relating to fuel storage tanks applies to fuel storage tanks up to 3500 litres capacity supplying liquid fuel to domestic properties. Fuel storage tank installations must comply with regional building regulations.

For information on larger tanks or non-residential sites, please contact OFTEC’s technical team on [email protected] To go find out more about these regulations please click on Oftec.

 

Can a diesel fuel tank explode?

Diesel fuel is widely regarded as safe to handle and store in it's liquid form. In its vapor form, diesel is very dangerous and can catch fire (or explode) easily in the presence of an accelerant such as fan air or oxygen. Diesel is a stable liquid at normal outdoor temperatures. However, at temperatures above 100 degrees, the diesel liquid can begin to vaporize. Diesel vapors can ignite and explode when mixed with air. For this reason diesel should be stored in a safe manner according to building regulations and in a well ventilated area.

 

How long does diesel last in a tank?

Usually diesel last between 6 months to a year. To extend it's life beyond this it will need to be treated with biocides and additivies.

 

Does a diesel tank need a vent?

Yes, diesel tanks should be equipped with a vent for a umber of reasons. It helps prevent a build up of vapuurs in the tank which at a certain temperature can become explosive. It also helps prevent a vacuum forming in the tank while drawing diesel from the tank or over pressurising the tank during filling.

 

What is a good fuel tank capacity?

This depends very much on your requirements for diesel. If you are only refueling on or two vehicles such as tractors on your farm we would reccommend a diesel tank of between 2500 - 5000 litres. If however, you are filling a fleet of vans or lorries on a daily basis, it may be worthwhile to invest in a large steel bunded tank with a diesel dispensing pump or fuel management system attached to the tank.
