Portable Fuel Tanks
In 2011 the EPA changed the guidelines for how much gasoline vapor can escape from a portable fuel tank. In response to these changes, many manufacturers have had to revamp their portable fuel tanks to meet these requirements. Many have come up with designs using low permeation plastic that is strong and durable but allows very little vapors to escape. Wholesale Marine takes these regulations very seriously and ensures that all or are brands carry the highest quality tanks.
