Extensive industry repair reports confirm; a large number of
underground fuel storage tanks are NOT compatible with today’s
modern fuels. Ethanol, while a renewable resource, is a solvent
and like many harsh chemical compounds, should be contained in an appropriately prepared tank.
Today’s modern fuels demand your fuel storage tanks be updated to meet this challenge.
Federal EPA states that it is the responsibility owners and operators to confirm if their tanks are
compatible with Ethanol blended fuels prior to use.
Microbial influenced corrosion (MIC) from today’s modern fuels is the most overlooked corrosion problem in UST systems, containing today’s modern fuels.
Whether fiberglass, steel, or a previously lined tank; any vessel not specifically designed and manufactured for today’s fuels should be evaluated for resistance to these new formulations. The innovators at Tank Tech have developed the protocol for pre-screening your fuel storage tanks to determine their ability to withstand today’s modern fuels.
