Welcome Pack

Welcome pack and what to do once your tank is delivered.

Delivery

All tanks must be inspected on delivery. Please check for any scratches etc caused in transit. Touch up can be supplied if the paint has been scratched down to the bare metal

– Before usage please check all equipment, breathers and gauges are fitted in accordance with the quotation. If anything is missing and it is reported over two weeks after delivery then the customer will be liable for this.

– Please check all pipework connecting to the pump is tight and nothing has come lose in transit. The jubilee clips can sometimes loosen so these need be tight.

– If your tank has a hydrostatic gauge fitted, the rubber tubing going into the top of the gauge needs to be air tight to give an accurate reading, it is worth checking this again as it can come slightly lose during transport.

– If any further instructions for the equipment is needed then please call us and we can send over the appropriate PDFs for this.

Pumps & Equipment

Standard 230v Pump kits. We use Piusi as our designated supplier for pumps. These are fitted with a standard 2 pin plug. Customers can either replace this with a 3 pin, use an adapter or hard wire it in. Fuel safe do not provide the adapters or fit a 3 pin plug. Once the pump has power and the tank has been filled it is as simple as pulling the trigger and the pump will self-prime.

– Standard 12v pump kits. All the 12v kits come with the crocodile clips to connect to a 12v battery. Once again one the pump has power it will self-prime when the trigger is pulled.

– Delivery Gun. All our standard kits come with a none automatic delivery gun as standard. Auto shut off guns can be supplied with these upon request. If you decide after delivery you would like an auto shut off gun we can send these separately.

– Fuel Management systems. The MC70 fob activated managements system will come with the software and 10 keys as standard. If more keys are required please let us know and we can facilitate this.

Filling your tank for the first time

Once the tank is filled and the pump in use check the pipework for any drips etc.
– We also recommend if you have a tank with a float gauge to check the float/string is reaching the bottom of the tank. Sometimes in transit the string can become tangled on the internal stiffeners in the tank.

Safety

There should be no smoking anywhere near the fuel tank
– If you are storing kerosine in the tank we must be made aware of this as different pumps will be required
– People should not be using mobile phones when filling up.
– Unless otherwise specified the tanks shouldn’t be transported with any fuel in or you could be at risk of breaching ADR regulations.
– Unless otherwise specified the tanks should not be lifted or moved with fuel inside.
– Unless otherwise specified do not stack things on tip of the tank.
– When storing oil etc you must adhere to environmental guidelines. Fuel safe can offer advice on this but you must always check with your local governing body/environmental regulations.

What if my tank Leaks?

All our tanks are dye tested and pressure tested. Whilst this results in minimal risk of leaks etc, sometimes things can go wrong. In this case we would arrange to get the tank back, repair and reimburse for any total loss of fuel.

First fill

It is important on the first fill to check the gauge is working correctly. We calibrate on site but there is no way of truly testing this until the tank is full, especially with the Hydrostatic gauge.

We do not take responsibility for any overfills so this must be checked after the first fill. Or we advise on having a bund alarm fitted for an overfill prevention device.
