Save time and money with on-site fuel storage!
Whether your business offers agricultural, industrial, mining, transportation or other services, investing in an on-site fuel storage solution can save your business time and money.
In less than one year alone, the tank pays for itself in cost savings and in 10 years, the possible cost savings are a staggering $768,000!
Here are 5 additional reasons that highlight how investing in an on-site fuel solution can save your business time and money.
It saves you time
On-site fuel storage is highly economical if your business owns a fleet of vehicles. It can save you time and energy. Purchasing a fuel storage solution will reduce your fleets refuelling travel time. Jobs can be completed faster, giving your team more time to spend on other projects and save you money in wages over time.
If you need to refuel frequently, an on-site fuel tank becomes an even better investment to save time and effort.
It saves you money
Cheaper fuel prices
Refuelling at fuel stations not only burns excess fuel that you could have used to complete a job, but it also means you’re at the mercy of consumer price changes.
Having an on-site fuel solution means you have greater control over your fuel costs. As the case is with most consumables, prices become cheaper when you buy in bulk. This is no different when purchasing fuel.
In addition to receiving the advantages of lower prices, combining on-site fuel storage enables you to predict future expenses as you can monitor both how much fuel you are using and how much you have stored in your tanks. This knowledge will provide you with a better handle on your finances.
Reduce maintenance costs
If you have fuel available on-site, then your fleet will be travelling less to re-fuel, resulting in fewer repairs and services over their lifetime.
Fewer kilometres on the odometer will buy you more time before you need to replace your fleet vehicles. Multiply those savings over time and you could be put that extra money towards a new investment for your business.
Better fuel quality
When you rely on others for your fuel supply there is a greater risk of insufficient measures being taken against diesel bug or contaminated fuel
If your refuelling point has contaminated fuel and is unavailable for a period, this has huge implications on your vehicles, deadlines, and expenditure
Contaminated fuel can have serious effects on your engines, fuel systems and tanks resulting in significant problems for your fleet, including:
- Poor engine performance (caused by insufficient fuel reaching the engine)
- Increased fuel consumption
- Altered fuel composition/ degradation of fuel components
- Higher fuel usage
- Engine failure, in severe cases
- Blocked filters
- Exhaust emissions
- Leaking fuel tanks (caused by corrosion)
When you invest in an on-site fuel solution, you have control over your fuel . This ensures peace of mind knowing what’s going into your machinery and the quality of the fuel to keep your engines clean and running in top condition.
Minimise the risk of fuel theft
Fuel theft can be a problem that is hard to identify for many businesses. Staff may be abusing their fuel allowances or fuel cards without you knowing. You can prevent fuel theft by enabling your vehicles to re-fuel on-site, giving you fuel security and complete control over your staff’s fuel usage.

I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure

The Duro Cubes are going extremely well! My guys are very happy with them. Having them already saved us on oil transport on at least 2 occasions so far and has also allowed us to restructure our oil work days and use out of hours oil deliveries to make more efficient use of the time on site.
