Thunder Creek Equipment has expanded its multi-tank platform of diesel fuel hauling solutions to include a new medium-duty truck body — the Multi-Tank Upfit — that can haul bulk diesel on the road without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement (Title 49 (CFR49) – local regulations may apply). Each truck is outfitted with eight independent 115-gallon tanks (920-gallon total capacity) that are only connected when a common manifold is opened at the pumping station.

“This is the natural evolution of the multi-tank concept, allowing contractors, heavy equipment owners and fuelling services to haul diesel in the platform that makes sense for their business,” says Luke Van Wyk, vice-president of sales for Thunder Creek Equipment. “This will allow fuel to be delivered in the field by trusted employees without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement.”

The new Multi-Tank Upfit is currently compatible with the Ford F550 chassis (Class 5 – either with or without PTO) — Thunder Creek plans on engineering the body for additional Class 5 and Class 6 trucks. The rear utility box of the new design contains the diesel pump and the manifold system. Options include a variety of meters for measuring, security and tracking, numerous reel options and lengths, a powerful 4-micron filter to ensure greater fuel quality, and colour schemes that match what is available with the Thunder Creek line of fuel and service trailers.
