There are multiple ways to drain a fuel tank, and it varies by equipment. Typically, there is a drain fitted to the bottom of the tank. If your tank isn’t equipped with a drain, a common way to empty fuel tanks is siphoning, where a line or hose is fed into the tank to drain the remaining liquid.
Venting your fuel tank is important for ensuring proper flow and preventing a vacuum. While there are many ways to vent a fuel tank, industrial tanks use a tank vent or tank breather for equipment safety and optimal performance.
When sizing your fuel tank, it’s important to consider your specific jobsites size and needs. Additionally, you must consider the compatibility, portability and capacity of the fuel tank.
