Uplift Fuels Safely and Within Environmental Legislation

Our fuel uplift service is available for organisations across the UK that need to move fuel from tank to tank, site-to-site or to remove it completely from site. You have a legal duty to ensure any waste fuels and oils are disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

If you have more than 1,000 litres of fuel that you no longer require, we can come to your site and uplift it from your tank using our fully certified fuel uplift service. With over 60 years’ industry experience, we have the knowledge and expertise to uplift as much as several million litres of fuel, so for those that need larger quantities of fuel uplifted, you can rest assured knowing that your fuel is in safe hands.

How does our fuel uplift service work?

Our engineers will come to your site and conduct a full site survey and technical evaluation of the stored fuel, including its condition and the best method of recovery.

We will then devise a plan, using risk assessments to ensure the best and least disruptive course of action is taken. Our engineers will then remove the fuel and pump it into one of our tankers in order to safely transport it from your site. If suitable, we will release it into the market and arrange payment.

We will always remove any tank residues, degas the tank if required and either decommission it to prevent future use or remove the tank from your site.

Whatever your requirements for uplifting your fuel, we are confident we can help. Get in touch with our fuel experts today on 0333 004 0345 to find out more about our fuel uplift service.

Which fuels do we uplift?

Speedy Fuels specialises in the uplift of diesel, gas oil and kerosene, as well as full tank cleaning and replacing contaminated fuel.

We will offer you payment if the fuel can be recycled back into general circulation, allowing you to turn your waste assets into profit. However, if it’s too badly degraded, we’ll dispose of it in line with all associated environmental legislation.

How can I prevent fuel degradation?

We recommend investing in a regularly planned preventative maintenance programme to save you from having to replace your entire fuel system. We can test, monitor and polish your fuel on a fixed price, annual basis to help you avoid having to uplift and replace your full fuel stock.

SWITCHING TO Industrial heating oil (IHO)

Many sectors can no longer use red diesel (gas oil) for commercial heating purposes as of April 1st 2022. Luckily, in instances where heat generation is required, we can uplift your diesel and replace your fuel with our industrial heating oil, a cost-effective, drop-in alternative to diesel. While IHO is fully miscible with gas oil, to reap the full rewards of IHO, we recommend, you use our fuel uplift service to safely remove your gas oil, clean your storage tanks, and replace your fuel with IHO.
