Choosing an Oil Storage Tank Size

You can view all of our steel oil tanks as a long term investment, as they are built to last. By buying a tank with a large capacity, you can save money on kerosene. Though the initial tank cost will be more, you can save money in the long run by bulk buying kerosene. The price of kerosene often changes, but a larger tank allows you to stock up when prices are low. You can take advantage of offers, deals and savings.

A large steel oil tank also means you don’t need to refuel it as often, which can reduce the cost of deliveries. It also reduces the chances of you running out of fuel completely. Over the course of the tank’s lifespan, these savings really do add up. It’s a good idea to opt for the highest steel oil tank capacity within your budget and space.

All of our domestic and commercial bunded steel oil tanks come with a 10 year guarantee when registered, and our single skin steel oil tanks come with a two year guarantee when registered.
