Making the Most of your Oil Tank


People and businesses invest in tanks to store oil for many reasons every day, but with so many different models available, it’s important that you choose the right tank for your individual needs.

With rising fuel prices and the convenience that comes with storing your own oil – as well as the ease and cost efficiency of buying oil at a time that works for you, it isn’t hard to see why so many businesses are beginning to invest in oil storage tanks. Tuffa’s storage tanks are designed to last and are suitable for both private and business use.

What Purpose Will a Tank Serve?

There are many reasons why you might look towards using oil storage for your home or business. Oil can be used for heating purposes and for vehicle maintenance, to name but a few. Businesses running a fleet of vehicles might also consider oil storage as a means of being able to change their cars’ oil and carry out other service works onsite, without the need to employ external services.

Agricultural businesses often make use of tanks to store a large amount of oil and fuel, to avoid driving tractors and other machinery on the main roads causing disruption. Businesses that invest in oil storage tanks save on fuel costs while ensuring that they continuously hold stock of various materials.

Oil Tank Sizes

Tuffa manufacture tanks in a wide range of sizes, suitable for all purposes. On top of this, we are also able to manufacture bespoke tanks for specific requirements. This means that if you are concerned about fitting a tank into your own setting, we are able to offer advice and build a suitable tank based on your specific measurements.

On top of the ability to manufacture tanks in all sizes, Tuffa also produces a range of transportable tanks, suitable moving large amounts of chemicals. All tanks are fully bunded to comply with oil storage regulations.

Caring For Your Oil Storage Tank

In order to get the most out of your storage tank, the correct maintenance is required. While our tanks require minimal maintenance, it is essential to take the correct precautions. These include:

  • Secluding off your tank to avoid damage and accidents
  • Regularly checking the filter and replacing when needed
  • Inspections carried out by a competent person
  • Remove any debris blocking the filter or drainage
