Military Fuel Bladders
Surplus Flexible Fuel Tanks for Temporary Storage
Water Storage Tanks offers 50,000 gallon surplus fuel tanks for use with diesel, jet-A, and some other hydrocarbon based fuels. Each collapsible fuel bladder was once owned by the military. Now ready to enter the civilian sector, our military fuel bladders can provide fuel storage to many companies.
The tanks come as part of an assembly kit containing the 50,000 gallon tank, a ground cloth, lifting straps, and an aluminum storage chest. Together, this equipment allows for smooth deployment and use even in remote or rural areas. Purchasing a surplus fuel bladder provides cost savings and helps support the military.
