Use bunded fuel tanks to meet legal requirements

The leakage of fuel oil can cause serious environmental problems, so you need to make sure that you use the right type of fuel tank to store your fuels safely. The Control of Pollution Regulations 2001 states that the fuel tank you use should be bunded if you store in excess of 200 litres on business premises or 3,500 litres at a domestic property.

Bunded fuel tanks are thus available in a wide range of sizes to cater for domestic and industrial use and because they are manufactured from high quality materials such as steel or high grade polyethylene, they will last for many years to come.

Polyethylene bunded fuel tanks

These tanks are virtually maintenance free and of course corrosion free. They are available in sizes from 1,360 litres to 5,000 litres and are often guaranteed for at least 10 years.

Steel bunded fuel tanks

These fuel tanks are available in much larger sizes than polyethylene fuel tanks. They are generally available in sizes of up to 15,000 litres and have a 110% bund capacity. On some units a small cabinet is included so a pump can be fitted as well as a tank level gauge.
