The Storage Tank has a larger capacity than the Storage for storing fluid. Any remaining fluid left in a tank will be lost when dismantled.
Liquids are loaded/unloaded directly using belts. Sorters cannot be used.
The Storage Tank can store Crude Oil, Refined Oil, Water, Deuterium, Hydrogen and Sulfuric Acid.
Player Tips & Tricks
Liquids can also be stored in regular Storage Mk.I/Storage Mk.II, however the Storage Tank holds a significantly higher volume than an item storage container can hold.
Liquids are transferred in and out by belt going direct into the tank, not via a sorter.
As of Version 0.6.17.5827, fluids may be placed or removed from the Storage Tank manually. Prior to this update, players could only directly place or remove items from the storage tank via belt.
