What is wet-hosing?

Wet Hosing

Wet-hosing, also known as: Fleet fueling, direct fueling or mobile on-site fueling, is when a fuel transport vehicle pumps directly from one tank into another. Most typically this is done with large scale construction site equipment and farming/agricultural machinery.

Direct fueling of large scale and heavy equipment is not something we think of until we actually have to do it. How often do you see a front end loader or crane being fueled at your local gas station? More than likely, you probably haven’t.

Bulk fuel transport companies, such as Tevis Energy, have tankers of all sizes that deliver to private fuel tanks on farms and businesses property, allowing for a private gas station to fuel the fleet. Wet-hosing on-site equipment means the fuel is delivered directly from the transport tanker into the heavy machinery or large storage tanks on private property. Direct fueling to heavy machinery and private storage tanks saves time and money.

Benefits of wet-hosing include:
• Fuel inventory control: Direct Fueling greatly reduces the possibility of theft of product.
• Convenience: Fuel is delivered directly to the machinery in need.
• Increased productivity: Eliminates the need to stop for fuel during work hours.
• Environmentally conscious: Reduces insurance concerns associated with on-site fueling tanks.
