Fuel Tank Design Tools

Cylindrical, Rectangular and D-Style are the most common design options.

Regardless of the fuel tank design you choose, your tank will be pressure tested to make sure it does not leak. All fuel tanks are available in aluminum and steel. Steel is used as a lower cost option while aluminum is often preferred because it's lighter and less susceptible to corrosion. Aluminum tanks are supplied with a satin finish. If you prefer, they can be polished to a mirror finish or acid etched to your specifications. Steel tanks are internally fogged with anti-corrosion oil and the exterior is painted with zinc enamel or epoxy, depending on your application. Recessed, top steps, or strap mounted steps are available.  Select the appropriate fuel tank design tool below for your preferred style.
