About us

The Petrol Tank Company Ltd was formed in 2008 by directors of Ideals UK Ltd to build on the success of petrol tank sales to the leisure sector, pioneered by Ideals in 2006.

In 2006 the 975 above ground petrol storage tank designed to store and receive tanker delivered petrol was launched. This was enthusiastically received by Schools, Marinas, Outdoor Pursuits Centres, Local Authorities, Golf Clubs and Farms which had long been looking for a safe and convenient way of storing petrol for on-site vehicles and machinery.


The 1950 was added to the range in 2007 when our rapidly expanding customer base, now covering the whole of the UK, made it clear that greater capacity was needed by larger organisations.

All our static tanks are the only purposed designed and UK manufactured, above ground storage systems of their kind in the country. Working in close consultation with Petroleum Inspection Officers, The Petrol Tank Company tanks are fully fire-proofed, bunded and conform to EU & UK petroleum storage requirements.
