If you’ve been in the trucking industry long enough to understand all the ins and outs of mobile bowsers, then one thing you certainly know is the essence of top-quality diesel pumps and tanks. The most vouched for dieselfuel tanks are those that offer the best solution to small, needless fuel leaks or fuel evaporation and eventually save you money you’d have the otherwise lost.


The secret here is simple: invest on the top-quality fuel tanks for your vehicle, and you will remain a happy driver while on the road. That’s to say, after making those regular inspections and noticing any signs of unwanted damages, go right ahead and choose from the best diesel tank suppliers if you are from South Africa.


But before then, here are the most critical diesel pumps and tanks purchase tips:


1.      Which material should your ideal fuel tank be made from?


In South Africa and probably all over the world at the moment, there are three types of diesel tanks – Aluminium, Steel and Stainless Steel. At the fore of these three is Aluminium, a choice that is a lot lighter than the other two and thus ideal for lower fuel consumption. Aluminium is corrosion-resistant too, especially when you remain keen and regularly give it periodical Aluminiumspray.


Steel is arguably the least expensive of the three, and that’s true across the various diesel tank suppliers in SA. Aside from that, this choice is solid and strong, heavy-duty and inflexible, unlike Aluminium. However, even with its significant demerit being the fact that it increases fuel consumption, its susceptibility to corrosion remains a crucial inhibitor to its longevity.


Stainless steel fuel tanks are currently the go-to choice for many trucks, including mobile bowsers. Right from being a very long-lasting and practical choice to its non-corrosive cover, stainless steel offers the right value for money. But as someone who has never used it before, be sure to keep this diesel tank exposed to a fresh supply of oxygen all the time, lest it starts developing pits and crevices.


But the bottom-line is, all the three tank types feature excellent fuel storage qualities and can truly be relied on. However, your choice of tank should not rely on this attribute alone.



  • Be sure it is the right fit for the space available with a weld width of ¼ inch.

  • The best volume to choose is that which can hold 150 gallons.

  • Material thickness also matters and the recommended ones are; 1/8-inch Aluminum, 12-inch steel and 14-inch stainless steel.

  • One more thing – ask the Diesel Tank Supplier to test it individually before you leave their store.
