How many gallons of gas does a tanker truck hold?
A gasoline tanker truck holds 9,000 gallons of gasoline. Since a barrel of oil is 44 gallons, one can assume that an oil tanker truck can haul about 200 barrels of crude. …So now the question becomes: Are the gasoline tanker trucks and crude tanker trucks using the same size tanks? The reason I was looking for this is because I invest in junior oil companies and Tri-Valley Corporation in Bakersfield has two big finds and has choked back production because they simply don't have enough tanker trucks to haul the oil away. Within 6 months, I estimate they will be hooked up to a pipe line, but until then they are scrounging for trucks. So I am accumulating the stock, but very slowly until I hear how many trucks they have, which will determine their shipping capacity. So you see, there are very real reasons for having access to this kind of information. - Jerry Hill, California Central Coast. most about 200 bbls by the way a bbl is 42 gal but it all depends on the gravity of the oil as it can variy a lot from well to well rule of thumb for my trucks is 134+ gravity to determine the load and it takes a class 307/407 trailer most gas wagons are 306 and won't work Edit by Don Lawson - I was an oil hauler for a while and I have created a calculator to tell you specifically how much oil you can haul on your truck. You must know your empty axle weights, total empty weight, internal and external bridge lengths before you can use it. Just go to oeprod.com or barrelcalculator.com to use it. The site is a work in progress but is usable.
7500 gallons due to the weight not the available volume in the tank.
A semi trailer in Australia can carry 40 000 litres of unleaded petrol and a B double carries 57 000 litres due to on road weight restrictions. B double fuel tankers have spac…e to carry 68 000 litres of product to allow for future road weight law changes/increases
6,500 to 7,000 gallons.
On average, about 26 gallons.
Ammonia in a gaseous state would be measured in cubic feet. Ammonia tanker trailers would be sized based upon how many gallons of liquid ammonia they could legally carry i…n the state/states in which they would operate and the weight limit of each of these states. Generally speaking, Anhydrous Ammonia would weight 5.15 pounds per gallon at 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Example, let's say that a state's maximum legal load limit for it's roads is 80,000 lbs. The truck pulling the trailer weighs 14,000 lbs and the trailer that is being pulled weighs 23,000 lbs. The combined truck and trailer weigh 37,000 lbs leaving you 43,000 lbs of product you can carry before you reach the maximum legal load limit of 80,000lbs(80,000-14,000=66,000, 66,000-23,000=43,000). This would allow you to legally haul 8,349 gallons of liquid anhydrous ammonia (43,000/5.15=8349.515).
Actually, railroad tank sizes differ as much or more in volumetric capacity than their road-going counterparts. American Railcar manufactures tank cars; a few of their offerin…gs can be found at the following website: http://www.americanrailcar.com/RailcarManufacturing/Car.aspx?car=tank As you can see, those nominal sizes range from 15,800 US gallons to 33,600 US gallons. Importantly, in context, American Railcar is not the only manufacturer of railroad tank cars; other manufacturers offer rail tank cars in a variety of additional sizes. Your question isn't quite as open-ended as "how long is a rope," but it's close. PREVIOUS ANSWER: The capacity is marked on the end of most tankers. The last train I looked at most of the tankers were around 30,000 us gallons or 24,980 imperial gallons or 113,562 liters.
Assuming you mean the cargo and not the fuel to power the tanker... 172 million gallons of oil. (42 gallons per barrel, times 4.1m bbl per the article below) "…Supertankers" are generally defined as those greater than 250,000 tonnes deadweight (meaning the maximum weight they can carry when fully loaded). Today's supertankers, on average, can carry about 2 million barrels or 84 million gallons of crude oil and petroleum product. The largest supertanker in the world is the Norwegian-owned Knock Nevis which is 647,955 tonnes deadweight and can hold 4.1 million barrels of petroleum.

Answer the length ot the truck depends on the length of the trator and the lengthof the trailer usually tho the tanker trailer is 48 feet, and a tractor is… about 20 to 25 feet so average length is usually about 70 feet

Any where from 6,000 gallon up to 8,000 gallon depending on the product loaded it's more a matter of legal gross weight can not exceed 80,000lbs for a 16 wheeler
It depends on what the job is, small airway service trucks for light aircraft hold around 450 - 700 gallons and those road monsters can move 9500 Gallons in a single 4 compart…ment aluminum tanker - the only limit to physical capacity is the country/state/city laws.
there are many sizes, generally 2000 to 5000 gallons
In Ford Ranger
It depends on the size of your Ranger. First of all I would suggest look in your truck or owner's manual. That should tell you what size of a tank you have. If you don't have …one and your Ranger is a typical single cab, short bed the largest fuel tank possible would be an 18gal. Tank sizes will vary between with what the truck is built for. Crew cabs w/short beds are for hualing people with little supplys. That kind of Ranger would be modified to carry a maximum fuel load of 20gal. Single/Ext. Cab w/full or long beds will tend to have a maximum of 20-25gal(varying cab and bed combinations).
