Fuel Tank Replacement
Hi, I’m Peter Thornton with Duthie Power Services, also known as “Ask Pete” on our website. Most generators that we sell today, the fuel tank is in the base of the generator, so its placement is wherever that generator is set. But that’s not always the case.
The biggest reason for keeping the fuel tank close to the generator set is that, in many buildings, there’s not a lot of real estate to use, to store, or to have more equipment set on it. So, the less amount of room you use to have that fuel tank and your generator in one spot, the better it is.
Other variations of a fuel tank can be a generator that’s set on the roof of a building. In that case, there are certain laws and regulations that say you can only put on so much fuel on a roof, so generally, the fuel tank is located on the ground and piped up to the generator.
