If fuel is an integral part of your business, you will need a fleet of fuel delivery trucks that is well-suited to meet your company’s demands. If you are having trouble finding what you are looking for in the marketplace, you may want to consider customizing a vehicle to meet your specific needs. There are some key factors you will need to consider when choosing which features you want for your custom-built truck.
The first thing you will want to consider is the size of the tank for your truck. If your deliveries are limited to local businesses or households, a smaller tank should be able to get the job done. Small tanks typically hold 3,000 gallons or less. If your business handles larger deliveries to filling stations, you will need a larger tank. These are available in capacities upwards of 6,000 gallons. Larger tanks can also be compartmentalized. For example, if you neededfuel delivery trucks capable of delivering different grades of gasoline to service stations, compartmentalized tanks could make this possible in fewer trips resulting in saved time and money.
Another major decision when customizing your truck will be the material of the tank. Aluminum has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Aluminum is less susceptible to corrosion than other metals and thus will last for a very long time. It is also lighter than other metals, meaning your vehicles will consume less fuel and save you money over time. The more traditional material for fuel tanks would be steel. Steel is affordable, durable and environmentally friendly since it is recyclable. For a more high-end look, stainless steel may be the way to go. It holds its shine and gives your tanks a polished, professional look.
Having your fuel delivery trucks customized is a great way to make sure that you are getting vehicles that meet your business’s specific needs. If you need any special services, contact Rampstar Engine and Accessory today!
