Fuel Transfer Tanks & Pumps

Fuel transfer tanks hold additional fuel and can be attached to a vehicle for your own personal on-the-go gas station. Essential components of fuel storage tanks, fuel transfer pumps move fuel from storage tanks to various machinery. At Omni Garage our comprehensive range of tanks are available in various sizes starting from 20 gallons to over 100 gallons and can hold fuel of any type: gas, diesel, kerosene, ethanol, methanol and aviation fuel. We have tanks made from aluminum, steel and aluminized steel for corrosion resistance. Additionally, Omni Garage carries high-quality electric and manual fuel transfer pumps enabling the efficient transport of fuel with every pump.

Frequently Asked Questions

A fuel transfer tank is a container that holds fuel to refuel equipment, generators, power tools, and more. They can transport liquids on your truck, SUV, or Jeep to job sites or remote areas where access to fuel might be sparse. Having one on hand can also be useful in the event of a natural disaster or emergency, providing power for essential equipment. They require a transfer pump to siphon fuel into external appliances. There are many quality fuel transfer tanks with pumps to choose from, including a variety of RDS tanks. With the right fuel transfer tanks, you can take fuel anywhere.

Auxiliary fuel tanks are containers designed to provide additional fuel storage capacity for your vehicle. They’re typically either mounted to the truck bed or installed underneath it in a way that transfers fuel directly to the stock fuel system when it’s empty. An auxiliary tank may employ its own fuel system via an inline pump or simply use gravity. The main purpose of auxiliary tanks is to provide supplemental fuel during prolonged travel, extending the range of trucks, off-road vehicles, and RVs.

The difference isn’t astronomical. Auxiliary tank prices can run a bit higher, ranging from about $400 to $1500. On the flip side, transfer fuel tanks range from roughly $500 to $1,000. Ultimately, it depends on the model you get, its construction, and its features.

The difference between the amount of fuel a transfer tank and an auxiliary tank can hold is negligible. Both types of tanks have a capacity between 20-100 gallons. Your vehicle’s gas mileage and the number of miles you want to be able to travel will largely dictate the capacity you choose for your fuel tank. Did you know you can get a fuel tank that carries more than just fuel? Fuel transfer tanks with toolboxes exist, and they’re awesome. If you’re a working professional on the job, this could be the gear solution you didn’t know you needed.

Both fuel transfer tanks and auxiliary tanks are typically made from aluminum or steel. Steel provides the utmost strength and durability throughout travels, but it also weighs more. This could be something to factor in if you’re conscious of your vehicle’s weight or towing capacity. Steel is also vulnerable to rust and corrosion in wet or salty environments. Their endurance can be improved by protective coatings, such as a powder coat finish. On the other hand, aluminum tanks are lightweight, naturally corrosion-resistant, and heat-dissipating, which reduces overheating. The tradeoff is that aluminum is less durable, making it more prone to damage upon impact. For the best of both worlds, there’s a little something called aluminized steel. Fuel tanks with aluminum-plated steel offer protection from moisture, heat, and collisions, all in one glorious tank.

For most professionals who travel to job sites and remote destinations, the answer is yes. They help save time and money spent on fuel. Fuel transfer tanks also provide preparedness for emergencies, back up fuel for peace of mind, and options for D.I.Y. customizations.
