Fuel Trucks

Fuel Trucks, also known as gas trucks, tank trucks, or tankers, are commercial vehicles that provide for the delivery of fuel tanks, which are often produced as part of the truck chassis itself, forming one structural entity. The most frequent purpose of fuel trucks -- which can haul fuel, petrol, oil, and/or diesel -- is to transport fuel to gas stations around the nation. New and used fuel trucks for sale on Equipment Trader are manufactured by companies including Chevrolet-GMC, Ford, Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, and Sterling.

Fuel trucks traditionally transport cylindrical tanks which are positioned flatly on the truck's trailer. The tank may include a single compartment, or can be split into a number of compartments. A major threat for fuel trucks is load surge, where abrupt accelerations and braking, or tight turns, can lead to liquid cargo crashing into the tank's wall, hazardously exerting force on the fuel truck and possibly causing an auto accident. The fuel truck's cylindrical shape, and the splitting of the tank into more than one compartment, aids fuel trucks in restricting the motion of liquid cargo and lowering the threat of load surge. Multiple compartments additionally provide for a single fuel truck to deliver a range of different fuel grades at the same time.

When purchasing a fuel truck, there are many things to consider. Most significantly, the tank should be inspected for pressure and leaks, ensuring that fuel truck is totally airtight and secure. Examining the truck should additionally involve an inspection of the valves, pressure gauges, tires, and bolts. Because fuel can expand and shrink in various climates, keep in mind when filling fuel into the tanker to avoid reaching 100% of its loading capacity so that this common phenomena can happen safely. When operating the fuel truck, the risk of liquid load surge may be reduced by positioning baffles into the tank, exerting greater control over braking, and driving slowly around sharp turns. Lastly, when dispensing fuel, it is critical that you bond and ground the fuel truck and connected equipment so that static is prevented from building up and igniting a fire or causing an explosion. In all stages of operating a fuel truck, remember to abide by all federal, state, and local laws, including the regulations and recommendations from organizations such as the EPA, FMCSA, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
