Above-Ground Fuel Tank Set Up
A Michigan farmer says his above-ground fueling station was inexpensive to set up and makes it easy to spot leaks if they ever occur.
Nate Ellis, who farms near Grand Junction, already had a concrete slab behind his workshop. He mounted two 1,000-gal. tanks - one for gas and one for diesel - on timber "cribs" made out of 8 by 8-in. treated timbers.
He mounted his electric metering fuel pump, which used to be mounted on the ground, up on a pedestal between the tanks. The pedestal is made out of a heavy steel pipe and is fitted with hangars for the nozzles and handy on-off switches for each of the tanks.
Ellis likes being able to keep an eye out for leaks and the fact that all components are out in the open where they're easy to get to.
