Steel Diesel Tanks FAQs

  • What are steel bunded fuel tanks?

    A steel bunded fuel tank is a steel vessel for storing and/or dispensing fuels that features both an inner tank and outer tank. The inner tank stores the fuel, while the outer tank is a failsafe to capture fuel in the event of leakage or spillage from the inner tank.

    By employing this ‘tank within a tank’ approach, a steel bunded fuel tank helps to minimise environmental damage in the event of spillage and helps to provide an extra layer of security against would-be thieves and drill-siphoning. As a result of this ingenuity, bunded fuel tanks are the only legally suitable options for fuel storage in UK-based industrial and commercial situations and are also attractive for domestic use.

    RPM’s range of steel bunded fuel tanks and bunded fuel stations come in capacities of up to 10,000 liters, and features extras including lockable security cabinets, integral diesel pumps, and more. A steel bunded fuel station from RPM is your one-stop solution for safely storing and dispensing large quantities of diesel with total peace of mind.

  • What is a steel bunded fuel tank used for?

  • How much does a steel bunded fuel station cost?

    The range of steel bunded fuel stations on offer from RPM Fuels and Tanks cater to a range of price points. Our lowest capacity station starts at £1,335.00 + VAT, and the highest capacity tank starts at £4,750.00 + VAT. The inclusion of optional extra components will alter the price.

    There are many variables that impact how much a steel bunded fuel station should cost. The thickness of the steel used, the capacity of the tank, included extras such as battery-operated pumps, nozzles, hose, lockable security cabinets etc are all variables to consider. Whatever your requirements, RPM has the robust diesel fuel storage solution you seek.

  • What does OFTEC stand for?

    OFTEC stands for the Oil Firing Technical Association. A steel diesel fuel tank that is said to be OFTEC certified means that the design meets the strict safety and environmental criteria set by the OFTEC. These vary according to what capacity the fuel tank is manufactured to.

    One key part of OFTEC certification involves the size of the tank’s bund. To be OFTEC certified, a fuel tank with a capacity that is greater than 200 litres must be bunded, with the outer bund being capable of containing 110% of the tank’s storage capacity. Another key factor that decides whether a fuel tank can be OFTEC certified is whether the tank includes a gauge.

    It is highly recommended that your steel diesel fuel tank requirements are discussed with an OFTEC registered technician. They will be able to recommend definitively what material and size of tank you will need based on your situation, requirements, and environment. An OFTEC registered technician will also be able to make recommendations about tank location, base support, and inspections.

  • What is the difference between red and white diesel?

    White diesel is the ultra-low sulphur diesel typically used for road-going vehicles. White diesel also contains a higher concentration of cetane than red diesel. Red diesel is used for certain types of machinery, tractors, and combine harvesters, with a red dye added to differentiate it visually from white diesel.

    Red diesel (also known in other countries as gas oil) was traditionally used for domestic heating, though its use has since been replaced with Kerosene (also known as heating oil). Its use is typically commercial, and should not be put into a piece of machinery, plant, or vehicle unless the manufacturer recommends it.
