You are assuming risk each time you transfer a hazardous material from one location to another. Often spills will happen, and the smell is the least of your worries. Having a gasoline tank at your home and professionals trained in the transportation of hazmat material limits you and your family’s risk of incurring dangerous situations.
Gas prices are constantly fluctuating. A gasoline tank that stores large amounts of gas gives you the ability to buy more when the price for gas is low and ride out the higher market prices.
Purchasing a 275-gallon gasoline tank can set you back quite a bit, costing you anywhere from 800-1,400 dollars. Alternatively, there are options for renting that require a small fee only once a quarter. Other than the large upfront cast, there is one significant difference between renting and purchasing your tank. When you are buying a tank, that tank is yours and therefore, maintenance, compliance and upkeep are on you. When you rent a tank from a professional that prioritizes safety, like Foster Fuels, they are liable for any compliance issues that may occur. Renting your tank could alleviate liability and give you one less stress point.
Dispensing the gasoline from tank to tank requires a fuel transfer pump. Pumps can range in price from 100-800 dollars. Foster Fuels offers the safest options to ensure a secure transfer. Talk to one of our experts when considering which pump is best for you.
When shopping for a tank, be aware that you need more than just the 275-gallon gasoline container. You will need a pump, installation, and maintenance. Watch for attractive prices that only include the tank.
