• Reevaluation of tank-mounted dispensers for small
aboveground tanks. Right now, this is allowed only for
tanks in vaults, protected (UL 2085) tanks, and for fire
resistant (UL 2080) tanks at fleet motor fuel dispensing facilities. Some fleet facility operators question
whether this is justified for tanks of up to 1,000-gallon
capacity. There does not appear to be any adverse fire
• Area classification diagrams similar to Figures 8. 3. 2(a)
and (b) for CNG and LNG dispensers.
• Exemptions for small (less than 300-gallon) tanks used
to fuel small powered equipment such as golf carts.
• Reconsideration of Subsection 4. 2. 2, which prohibits
any direct connection between storage tanks at a bulk
distribution plant/terminal and an adjacent motor fuel
dispensing facility. Taken literally, this means that the
dispensers at the motor fuel dispensing facility must be
supplied by dedicated storage tanks filled via delivery
from a tank vehicle. Is there a way to safely and reliably
transfer fuel from the bulk plant tanks to the dedicated
tanks of the motor fuel dispensing facility?
