    Tuffa 6000 Litre Plastic Bunded Diesel Tank What is a bunded tank?

    A bunded tank consists of a 'tank within a tank'.

    The inner tank is the primary storage vessel, whilst the outer tank acts as a failsafe.

    In the event of a spill, surplus fuel will safely and securely be stored within the outer tank and an environmental pollution incident will be averted. 

    Tuffa 6000 Litre Plastic Bunded Diesel Tank Description

    The Tuffa 6000 litre plastic bunded diesel tank (1320 gallon) is rotomoulded with a highly durable, corrosion-resistant and UV stabilized polyethylene plastic. This gives you a life expectancy of at least 20 years when properly installed, maintained, and used. Tuffa are so sure of the quality of their tanks that they offer a 10 year warranty on all bunded tanks when registered. This tank is suitable for a range of industries and contains a secondary containment system (bund) capable of storing a minimum of 110% of the primary tank’s contents. This is a requirement for all oil storage regulations for this capacity tank in the UK and reduces the risk of oil spills or leaks. Our diesel tanks are compatible with red or white diesel and HVO100 or HVO diesel blends

    Tuffa 6000 Litre Plastic Bunded Diesel Tank Delivery Information


    The delivery of a tank can be confusing as each manufacturer offers a slightly different service and lead time. Please refer to our Delivery Information page.  Standard tank deliveries are "kerbside" which means the tank will be delivered to the kerb only and not positioned further. Should you have specific delivery requirements or restrictions, please contact us to discuss.


    Tanks Over 2500L – Articulated Lorry – Customer Offload:

    These tanks will be delivered on an articulated vehicle (approximately 16.5m long x 2.6m wide x 3m high) which has no offloading on board, it is the customer's responsibility to offload the tank, which may require a telehandler / forklift.  Curtain sided vehicles are also used, so please note that if there are obstacles or hanging branches on the road to the delivery site etc, the driver may refuse to drive the vehicle to the customer's location due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle. Please let us know if there are any obstructions before delivery, so we can arrange alternative transport.


    18 Tonne Tail Lift HGV

    This vehicle is the size of the largest bin lorries (for comparison) and is approximately 8.2m long x 2.6m wide x 4m high, often curtain sided so please note that if there are hanging branches etc, these vehicles will not attempt to drive down due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle and so it is recommended that a smaller vehicle is requested. Tanks will be lowered to the ground but not positioned as this is a kerbside delivery.  If a smaller vehicle is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name.


    HIAB Delivery

    HIAB delivery is available but must be requested and there will be an additional cost for this service. If a HIAB delivery is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name, and we will come back to you with a price for this service.



    Most accessories will be delivered within 1-3 working days (certain products and postcodes may take longer, please check the product page for update to date information). If you require them quicker, we can on occasions offer a next day service (please contact us to discuss). If the item(s) are out of stock, we will advise you of the expected lead time, and you will of course have the opportunity to cancel with a full refund.
