OUR DIESEL TANKS
Typically our diesel tanks are made to order. However, in some cases we (or our suppliers) stock a selection of bunded steel and plastic diesel tanks in several sizes and capacities.
PLASTIC DIESEL TANKS
Our plastic diesel tanks are manufactured from high-density UV-stabilised polyethylene, a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. They’re rotomoulded into a shape that provides maximum capacity while keeping them lightweight and compact.
These versatile tanks are utilised in businesses in many industries, ranging from logistics to construction. We manufacture tanks in capacities as low as 1,350L for smaller operations, up to 15,000 litres as a single unit and 30,000L storage tanks using interlinking, suitable for large fleets of vehicles.
All of our plastic diesel storage tanks also come bunded as standard and are fully compliant with UK fuel storage regulations.
STEEL DIESEL TANKS
Our bunded steel diesel tanks are available in 1,350-litre to 100,000-litre capacities. They’re manufactured from durable, mild steel with a design life of at least 30 years correctly installed and maintained.
These tanks have many practical applications, including providing a safe diesel storage place for cars, vans and trucks; dispensing red or white diesel and HVO or powering diesel generators.
Just like our plastic tanks, our steel bunded diesel tanks can be customised with an array of optional extras to suit your exact needs.
You can also check out An Expert Guide to Diesel Storage for information, advice and industry insights covering everything from the types of tanks, storage regulations, how to get the best price on fuel and preventing fuel theft. For more information about HVO view our Expert Guide to HVO Fuel Tanks.
WHAT SIZE DIESEL TANK DO I NEED?
We recommend buying the maximum capacity tank you can to reduce the chance of running out of fuel, minimise the frequency of tank refills and to enable you to purchase your diesel at the best possible price.
Our tanks have a 10 year guarantee on the inner tank and bund, with all parts carrying a 12 month guarantee. We would recommend regular maintenance of your tank via our service maintenance package to extend the tank’s useful life.
Tuffa Tanks are generally built to order. We can arrange delivery to sites across the UK, or tanks can be collected from our factory in Uttoxeter. Stock tanks available with next day delivery – call us for current stock levels.

DIESEL STORAGE REQUIREMENTS AND REGULATIONS
The Control of Pollution Regulations from 2001 dictates the legal requirements for storing oil (including diesel) on a property. The main points are as such:
- Oil must be stored in a container that is strong enough to make sure that it will not burst or leak when full
- Oil tanks and containers must be placed inside a containment system
- Valves and pipes must be sealed to prevent leaking and placed within the secondary confinement system or used with a drip tray to catch any spills
- Fixed tanks must have a sight gauge that has a valve that can be closed automatically
- Automatic overfill prevention devices must be used when it’s not practical to observe the vent pipe or tank
All of our diesel storage tanks are manufactured to comply with these guidelines. Our diesel tanks are bunded and are made from mild steel or recyclable polyethylene. We also offer multi-compartment diesel tanks to store several kinds of liquids (such as diesel and AdBlue or red and white diesel).
DIESEL TANK FAQs
WHAT IS A BUNDED DIESEL TANK?
A bunded diesel tank is a bulk diesel storage container comprising of two ‘tanks’. The inner tank contains the diesel whereas the outer tank contains any spills or leaks from the inner tank. As a legal requirement, the outer tank must be able to hold 110% of the contents of the inner tank.
HOW MUCH SHOULD A BUND HOLD?
To comply with oil storage regulations a bund should hold a minimum of 110% of the contents of the inner tank. We manufacture steel and plastic bunded diesel tanks.
HOW CAN I SAFELY STORE DIESEL FUEL?
Safely storing diesel requires a bunded tank. This is a legal requirement when you’re storing diesel in quantities above 200 litres. The bunded diesel tanks we manufacture are available in plastic and steel and capacities from 1,350 to 100,000 litres as standard.
HOW LONG CAN YOU STORE DIESEL FUEL?
You can store diesel fuel for up to a year without additives if the tank is kept below 20°C and out of direct sunlight (especially for polyethylene tanks). Using additives such as metal de-activators, fungicides, biocides and antioxidants can increase this time. HVO can be stored for 10 years.
