Steel tanks are known to provide unmatched strength in underground and above ground storage of fuel. However, fiberglass as a material has fast caught up with steel because manufacturers have found ways to produce extremely sturdy and long lasting tanks. As a rust-free and leak-proof tank solution, a fiberglass tank endows the user with several advantages. In addition, these tanks much more economical as compared with their metallic counterparts.

Since these tanks offer unmatched safety and convenience, they are apt for an application as vital as fuel storage. In addition to fuel, these tanks can also be used for storing combustible and hazardous fluids. Besides, there are a number of alternative fuels that are increasingly being used today. This has thrown open a whole new requirement for tanks that can be used for storing ethanol fuels and several other types of biodiesel fuel products.

If you are looking for a non-corrosive option, then these tanks should certainly be your preferred choice. Here are some of the common varieties in which these tanks are available:

•Double wall tanks are the most recommended type for storing fuel, thus you shall find these tanks being widely used at various sites and facilities. They are used by municipalities, counties, states, airports, and military bases for storing fuel. These tanks give you two levels of safety, thus giving you twice the amount of regular protection as compared to a single wall tank. This ensures that even in the case of a breach in the inner wall, the outer wall will still prevent your fuels from leaching into the soil.

If you are petroleum retailer, you would benefit from this tank because it can be used for storing and blending different fuels such as diesel.

Such tanks are best suited for environments where storage solutions need to be rapidly adapted to changing consumer demands.

In highly environmentally sensitive areas, fuel storage tanks should ideally have three walls. These tanks score high when you are looking for uncompromised security and strength.
