Polyethylene diesel transport tanks offer many advantages over the use of a traditional steel or fibreglass tank. Moulded from a specially formulated diesel grade polymer, they are built to last for many years. 


Poly Diesel Fuel Tanks: Major Advantages

These benefits are the exact reasons why it's worthwhile to invest in poly diesel solutions for your diesel transport needs. 

1. Material and Manufacturing

A poly diesel fuel tank is durable and secure in the most sensible and spectacular ways. For instance, steel tanks don’t do very well when left outside in the heat of the sun. Condensation—droplets of moisture from water vapor in the air—may build up on the steel tank and cause damage. Worse, it could mix with your diesel fuel through leaks and compromise your engine. This incident doesn’t occur with poly.

Other advantages of poly diesel transfer tanks:

  • Poly diesel fuel tanks are moulded as a seamless, one-piece unit which reduces the risk of splitting and leaks. Fuel transport tanks like steel, on the other hand, have seams, which are vulnerable areas that weaken its overall strength.

  • In instances of some rough-handling or collision, a poly diesel tank can absorb the force of the impact better than its counterparts. It will simply bounce back to shape.

    • Contrary to some claims, poly diesel transfer tanks are able to withstand the effects of diesel fuel.This is because only special heavy-duty grade polyethylene manufactured specifically for diesel use is utilised in the making of quality poly diesel tanks.

      • Built for long-lasting outdoor use.

2. Versatility and Portability


Poly diesel storage tanks have these perks on your farm:

        • Poly diesel tanks are lightweight, yet they are thicker than steel. In contrast, steel diesel tanks are heavier, making them costlier to transport. As a result, the entire process of installing and manoeuvring steel tanks around is difficult.

        • Models to fit all ute trays. Compact poly diesel tanks are ideal for utes. They save tray space to allow for easier on/off loading.

          • The flexibility of a poly diesel tank allows the material to bend rather than rupture.
          • Flat based for simplified transport.
          • Offers visibility to monitor fuel levels in the tank.
          • Variety of sizes available.
          • UV stabilised so it’s able to cope with harsh weather conditions.
          • Lifting handles and lightweight quality make a poly diesel cartage tank even more convenient to move around than steel.
          • Easier to stabilise on your vehicle.

3. Ease of Maintenance

Owing to the strength of material and manufacturing of poly diesel tanks, maintenance is less labour-intensive, saving you loads of time in repair.

Do poly diesel tanks save you effort and money on maintenance? Absolutely!

These are the reasons:

            • Poly diesel tanks are rust-resistant and corrosion-free.

              Other types of tanks have tried to combat this problem but haven’t achieved the degree of protection that poly has. For instance, stainless-steel tanks are still prone to localised corrosion, a type of corrosion that is much more difficult to detect.

              Apart from that, joints and screws of steel tanks are still vulnerable to rust.

4. Price and Savings

Poly diesel storage and cartage tanks are the most economical way to transport large volumes of diesel. These solutions are cost effective due to the low cost of materials used in the manufacturing process. And you get the best value for your money because Coerco's poly diesel tanks come with several items that are all ready to use upon purchase. 

For instance, Coerco’s self-contained diesel units and diesel storage tanks come with a transfer pump, vented filler cap, fuel hose and a trigger nozzle, among other things.

The low-maintenance quality of poly diesel fuel tanks also enables you to avoid costly repairs, making them a huge asset on your farm.

5. Longer Warranty

Poly diesel tanks may have a longer warranty than steel. In fact, all Coerco diesel storage and cartage tanks come with a 5-year warranty. When you get diesel storage tanks for your farm from a leader and expert in the industry, you can be sure of a rock-solid commitment and a friendly after-sales support.
