WHAT ARE TRANSFER FUEL TANKS?

Simply stated, transfer tanks are designed to transport fuel safely. This extra fuel is used to power machinery like ATVs, construction equipment, mowers and more.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRANSFER FUEL TANK AND AN AUXILIARY FUEL TANK?

The main difference between a transfer tank and an auxiliary tank is how it fuels equipment. A transfer tank is attached to a trunk bed, and fuel is pumped out to power machinery. An auxiliary fuel tank, on the other hand, is attached to the bed of a truck and fuel is plumbed right into a truck’s stock factory tank.

WHAT THINGS SHOULD I CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A GASOLINE OR DIESEL FUEL TANK?

First and foremost, you should evaluate the quality of the tank. Unlike many of the tanks on the market, Vector Fuel Systems transfer tanks are made in the United States and manufactured to precision. Our tanks are made from heavy-duty 11-guage steel and powder coated to ensure longevity.

You should also look into the tank’s flow rate. Unless you want to wait around forever fueling your equipment, you should look for a tank that can fuel your equipment quickly and efficiently. The Vector Elite Tanks have a flow rate of eight gallons per minute which is as quick as a commercial gas station. 

Other product features you should look for include a digital fuel gauge, a locking gas cap, a rollover relief valve, an accessible fuel filter, and more.

 

WHAT KIND OF FUEL DO VECTOR TANKS HOLD? 

Vector Pro tanks hold diesel only, whereas Vector Elite tanks are designed to hold diesel, kerosene, and gasoline.

 

WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE VECTOR PRO AND VECTOR ELITE LINES? 

The major difference between the two lines on fuel transfer tanks lies in the type of fuel they hold. Vector Pro Tanks is designed to transport diesel fuel. Vector Elite Tanks are approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to transport diesel, gasoline, or kerosene.

Other differences are found in their features. For example, the Elite line has a digital fuel meter, a safety lockout feature, a timer, and more. For more information on the specific product features of the Pro Tanks and the Elite Tanks, visit their webpage and click on the tanks to learn more.

WHAT IS THE FUEL TRANSFER TANK INSTALLATION PROCESS LIKE?

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL PARTS I NEED TO PURCHASE TO USE MY NEW VECTOR FUEL TANK? 

No! One of the biggest benefits of purchasing a Vector transfer fuel tank is that they include all the mounting hardware and parts needed to install your tank and begin refueling your equipment.
