Compatibility Of Ust And Contents

Compatibility between tanks and contents means that fuel components will not change the physical or mechanical properties of the tank. Compatibility for liners requires that fuel components not cause blistering, underfilm corrosion or internal stress or cracking. There are concerns that some FRP tanks or liners may not be compatible with some methanol-blended (or possible ethanol-blended) fuels. A fuel tank should be designed to handle fuel compositions of the future.

Owners and operators of businesses with FRP-con-structed or lined tanks should consult appropriate standards of the American Petroleum Institute.
