How much fuel is considered bulk?
The term “bulk fuel” typically refers to large quantities of fuel that are stored or transported in bulk, rather than in smaller containers or drums. It is generally more than 200L. The exact volume of fuel considered “bulk” can vary depending on the context and industry, however.
It’s important to note that the specific threshold for what is considered bulk fuel may differ based on regional regulations, industry practices, and the purpose of the fuel storage or transportation.
Is it cheaper to buy petrol in bulk?
Buying petrol or fuel in general in bulk can often lead to cost savings compared to purchasing smaller quantities. When you buy fuel in large quantities, suppliers typically offer discounted wholesale prices. These prices are generally lower than retail prices and can result in significant cost savings, especially for those who require large volumes of fuel. Additionally, buying fuel in bulk allows for more efficient delivery logistics, reducing transportation costs per unit of fuel. By scheduling bulk fuel deliveries, buyers can take advantage of economies of scale and minimise associated delivery fees.
