Reusing used diesel fuel tanks

Reusing used diesel fuel tanks

The vast majority of truck parts can be replaced with second-hand parts to save you the expense of buying them new from the manufacturer. But many people don’t realise this also applies to diesel fuel tanks. Here is everything you need to know about reusing used fuel tanks, and how easy we can make it for you.

Is it legal to use a second-hand diesel fuel tank?

Yes, using a second-hand diesel fuel tank in your truck is perfectly legal, and in fact it is common practice in the UK and throughout the world. This is why we are allowed to sell used fuel tanks here at our site in Bridlington, Yorkshire, in exactly the same as we supply a wide range of other replacement parts for trucks.

Will the quality of a used fuel tank be good enough?

When you are choosing a second-hand diesel fuel tank for your truck, the quality is obviously important. It is fair to say that the condition of used fuel tanks does vary quite a lot.

However, most diesel fuel tanks are made of aluminium. This makes them extremely hard-wearing and highly resistant to wear and tear, so second-hand fuel tanks are usually a safe bet.

If you want extra peace of mind, we are always happy to answer your questions about a fuel tank before you buy, and show you photographs. You are also welcome to visit our site to see the condition of our used fuel tanks for yourself.
