What is Bulk Fuel Storage?
Bulk Fuel Storage is fuel storage of more than 200L, stored in bulk fuel tanks either above or below ground. The storage system allows for increased fuel storage with systems having the capacity to hold up to 110,000L. Bulk fuel storage systems allow you to safely hold large volumes of fuel on-site using tanks that can be customised with specifications, accessories and signage to best accommodate your industry requirements.
Benefits of Bulk Fuel Storage
A major advantage of purchasing fuel in bulk are the price savings offered with wholesale prices in comparison to retail fuel pricing. Purchasing in bulk allows for pricing security, with lower prices available without retail markups and pricing fluctuations. Commonly referred to ‘pump prices’ often incorporate additional charges, such as fuel delivery charges and staffing costs. Through establishing direct relations with fuel suppliers, negotiations can be undertaken across supply, delivery, and price.
Fuel Tracking and Management
Storing fuel off-site creates complications with tracking fuel usage and expenditure. When fuel is obtained off-site it is more difficult to both accurately track fuel usage and to forecast fuel consumption. On-site bulk fuel storage ensures very accurate tracking of fuel, as tanks are fitted with management systems such as the Smartfill Fuel Management which are made to monitor, track and control fuel usage. Systems hence assist with both the management of fuel and the accurate allocation for fuel costs in future budgets.
Ideal for remote locations and busy fleets, on-site bulk fuel storage helps to increase project efficiency. Time is saved by not having to fill up at the bowser and being able to store large quantities of fuel in bulk fuel storage containers means there is less likelihood of running out of fuel and overall productivity can remain consistently high. Through on-site bulk fuel storage solutions, efficiency is maximised, and time management is improved allowing businesses to grow. Business operations are made more efficient with fewer delivery slowdowns and production halts, as refuelling is made easier. Organisations are able to schedule specific refuel dates based on the tracking of fuel usage, where fuel suppliers will directly refill tanks, ensuring a constant fuel supply is on-site. Bulk fuel storage helps machinery to increase efficiency, with fewer failure instances.
Fuel efficiency is further optimised through professional fuel management systems and dispension accessories which enhance security and prevent theft.

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
Ben Harris – AB Contract Farming
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.
