Fuel Tank Cleaning for Service Stations

Cleaning fuel tanks alleviates some big problems for service stations. You wouldn’t expect your fuel storage tanks to be spotless but you would be surprised at what’s lying at the bottom of a fuel tank.

Service Station Fuel Tank Cleaning

Here’s just a sampling of some of the fuel tank problems you may encounter if your fuel tanks are not cleaned.

  • Mucus-like sediment: Since ethanol is both a cleaning solvent and absorbent, water and dirt in the tank will cling to it and make their way into your fuel tanks. You can only hope your filters will catch most of it. Plus, sediment sitting at the bottom of your tanks can cause inaccurate tank gauge readings. Why pay for sediment to take up fuel space?
  • Debris damages leak detectors: Dirty fuel can also cost you when debris passes through your leak detectors. This can severely affect leak detector’s performance over time- which means they have to be replaced more often. It’s just another expense you don’t need.


  • Fuel altering microbes: Water, sludge and sediment at the bottom of tanks are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. They excrete waste, starting a bio-deterioration process that chemically alters fuel. Every time you fill your tanks, you risk contaminating your investment, without even knowing it. If you don’t get rid of microbes, the problem will only get worse.

Our powerful fuel tank cleaning process will help service station operators lose the worry, save money & avoid problems.

ATS Cleaning Process

ATS Environmental experts make the tank cleaning process easy, effective and hassle free. Here’s what you can expect:

  • We’ll remove the gunk, without removing any fuel: Our system uses a 50′ snake type hose that travels to the bottom of your tanks and removes all the damaging water-alcohol mixes, microbial growths, hydrocarbon emulsion and more, leaving only clean fuel for you to sell.
  • A portable & fast solution: We’ll schedule a time that works for you, come to your place and perform the service. Cleaning time depends on the amount of contaminants and water in your tank, but we’re usually finished in a matter of hours.
  • An affordable way to go: You can clean your tanks for less than the cost of repairing just one customer’s damaged car.
  • Change your filters every other month, instead of every week: A cleaner tank means cleaner fuel so you’ll use far fewer filters and save time, labor and money in the process.
  • Save your leak detectors, too: Clean fuel will increase your leak detectors’ life- saving you up to $400 each in replacement costs.
