The Vanguard fuel tank range is specifically designed to provide tough, reliable and low-cost-per-litre diesel storage for consumers. It is a great unit for customers that are made to order to suit the needs of the client. The fuel tanks in this range can vary in length and depth and also be constructed for space-saving efficiencies.
The entire Vanguard range (that is the Cylindrical, Rectangular and iTank) are double-walled steel diesel tanks and provide 100% secondary containment without the need for further bunding.
For diesel storage indoors, we recommend the SuperVault self-bunded and 4-hour fire-rated tank.
Although a tank primarily designed for diesel, the Vanguard can also be used for light fuel oil and lubricants and other fuels in some circumstances. It is the ideal diesel tank for truck stops, transport yards, mining sites and industrial sites
True Secondary Containment
The secondary containment that is built into the design of the Vanguard tanks are as important to the storage of fuel as the primary containment. This function not only aids in keeping fuel clean and stored without the need for external bunding (which can be quite costly); but also aids in the protection of the environment.

The Vanguard tank range by Fuelchief are all shop fabricated under strict quality controls. These tanks all comply with AS1692, AS1940 and UL1709.
