    Default Where do you find the elevated diesel storage tanks?

    Where does a person find an elevated diesel fuel storage tank like you see on farms?

    We got one free from a friend and our fuel company provided the other, both are on stands and 300 gallons.

    Most large farmers have the old silver ones in the trees and often give them away if you collect as they are too small these days and dont meet law in some areas . Realy nice ones i have seen make up to $100 on auctions , There were 9 ugly 300 gallon tanks on this farm that i am slowly giving away for case of beer each etc and hardly worth hauling long distances to scrap being so light .

    i wanted to get a used one i found, but the dealers wont fill it. they told me i now would be required to have a catch basin that can hold the entire contents of the tank in case of a leak.

    that blows......

    i guess if the tank was in place for years and filled regularly (ie grandfathered in) theres no issue. only new tanks.

    Or i can get some kind of double walled tank.

    i lost interest. use 5 gal cans

    Make sure your local guy will fill it.

    A friend of mine, here in Northern Lower Mich, delivers them. Not sure how far they travel, but if you are interested, I'll get in touch with him.
