Fuel storage tanks are a great option for many different types of businesses.  When you have fully fueled backup storage tanks in place, you have one less worry.  It’s just like storing peace of mind!

Fuel storage tanks are durable, portable and feature double-wall frames that protect from external damage and internal containment.  They have built-in pumps and meters, 110% containment capacity and range in size from 500 to 10,000 gallons.  Tanks come in a variety of shapes and sizes to best meet the needs of your short- or long-term projects.

Practical uses of fuel storage tanks include:

  • Job Site Fuel Storage
  • Disaster Recovery Fuel to power generators
  • Fueling equipment and vehicles between regularly scheduled deliveries


Other companies are using fuel storage tanks to manage their fueling needs.  Here are some examples of how:

– – A shipping company uses our mobile cube at an airport to fuel ground support equipment.

– – A small distribution company utilizes an on-site cube to save time and money by not sending their trucks to a retail fuel island.

– – A global diversified company utilizes our multi-compartment 12,000-gallon cube to fuel vehicles and assets at a temporary facility, while their own fuel island is being remodeled.

– – A multi-department first responder organization uses 500-gallon fuel cubes dispersed in an area to assist with firefighting.

– – A construction company uses fuel cubes for their on-site jobs to fill equipment.

– – A distribution company utilizes a 500-gallon cube to offset the on-site fleet fueling operations by Diesel Direct for trucks that are not present at the time of on-site fueling.

Last week, On-Site abruptly closed its doors when it was no longer able to purchase supply from its sole source of supply.  With this disruption in supply, the company was not able to service customers or continue to employ many members of their staff.

Hurricane season will be here before we know it. The official start date is June 1 and continues through November 30. The 2017 season featured 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes and 6 major hurricanes – one of the most active hurricane seasons to date. The forecast for 2018 is predicting a very active hurricane season as well. As it is Hurricane Preparedness Week, it’s a great time to review best practices on preparing before a potential disaster strikes.

Is your business ready to weather the storm?  

Develop an emergency plan – Diesel Direct offers Business Continuity Programs to ensure you receive the fuel you need in advance of a weather event that could leave you without fuel or access to fuel for an extended period.

Gather supplies – Diesel Direct can help you prepare by supporting all your fueling needs. Our fuel tanks can keep your generators and your business running when disaster strikes. We have tanks available that we can deliver immediately to help you prepare. Make sure all of your fleet vehicles are topped off.

Document your plan – Make sure your team knows exactly how to implement your backup plans, including where your disaster supplies are located and where all evacuation routes are located.

Test your backup plan – It’s a great time to make sure your backup functionalities are working properly. Fuel tanks should be tested and treated for water and microbial contamination.

Diesel Direct is committed to sustainable energy and provides safe and environmentally friendly fuel options.  As a nationwide mobile fueling company delivering fuel coast to coast, we’re in a unique position to put our sustainability plan and goals into practice.

Mobile fueling helps to reduce emissions through reducing trips to and from fuel stations.  On average, a truck needs to be driven 8 miles to find a station that can accommodate it.  Finding a station that can accommodate multiple trucks, that has easy access to entry and exit, and has a diesel fuel island, can be a challenge.  Roundtrip, that adds up to about 16 extra miles to get fueled.  Every gallon of diesel burned releases 22 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere.  Mobile fueling can save around 60 pounds of CO2 each time a truck is fueled.

Idling also contributes to unnecessary CO2 being released into the atmosphere.  Since we fuel while your trucks are parked, fuel burn related to idling time at a gas station is saved.

In addition to the basic atmospheric savings based on services alone, Diesel Direct uses Pure Aire Diesel®.  Pure Air Diesel offsets each gallon used by funding certified environmental projects that removed CO2 from the atmosphere, enabling us to run our business carbon neutral.

We invite you to do the same.  Pure Air Diesel is available to purchase from Diesel Direct.  We know that getting funding for sustainability plans can be a challenge.  Pure Air Diesel allows you to build your sustainability plans directly into your fuel budget.  Diesel Direct purchases offsets on your behalf and sends you a third-party certificate each quarter showing your CO2 offsets.

Call us today to learn more about our Pure Air Diesel program at 1-888-900-7787.  Together we can help the environment.
