Frequently Asked Questions
+What is the largest tank I can put on a truck that is under CDL requirements?
It depends on the tank material and number of compartments. Generally, either a 1500 gallon steel tank and a 2000 gallon aluminum tank with water compartments are the maximum sizes for medium duty trucks.
+Should I buy a steel or aluminum tank?
It depends. There are trade-offs of tank life versus carrying capacity versus cost. Aluminum is one-third the weight of steel, however it costs more than a steel tank of the same size. Aluminum tanks are more susceptible to cracking and pitting over their life and it is more difficult to have repairs done on aluminum tanks. Your decision depends on your application and your budget.
+Is financing available?
Yes, we work with a number of companies that have options available, with rates and terms depending on credit and business history.
+Do you take trade-ins?
No, but we will list your truck on our web site and let our customers know what you have to sell. We have many customers looking for used equipment.
