At Plastic-Mart, our fuel tank specialists can guide you through all the regulations that apply to liquid fuel tanks, including their safe storage, transportation and use. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration stipulates that a liquid fuel tank manufactured on or after Jan. 1, 1973, as well as any side-mounted gasoline tank, must conform to certain safety specifications.

Since some of the regulations relating to liquid fuel tanks can be a bit difficult to interpret, we’ll walk you through all the details that ensure the safe and legal construction of a liquid fuel tank – from the joints and fittings to the safety venting system and the fill pipe.
