How much does it cost to fill up a semi truck with two tanks?
One semi-truck driver who talked to NewsCenter 7 in December claimed that
it costs between $900 and $1,100 to fill up his tank, which carries between 120 and 150 gallons of fuel.
For a truck with a single 120-gallon tank, the cost to fill it with diesel in a normal U.S. tank is roughly $360,
or $900 for long-haul vehicles with two 150-gallon tanks. According to 18-wheelers with
two 150-gallon tanks' average fuel efficiency, a long-haul vehicle might go up to 2,100 miles on a single set of tanks.
Because semi trucks only get an average fuel efficiency of 5.6 miles per gallon (mpg), drivers must carry a lot of gasoline.
According to US standards in effect right now, diesel vehicles should achieve 7 miles per gallon at a service fee of around 15 cents per mile.
If your vehicle has a 50-gallon fuel tank and petrol costs, on average, $4 per gallon,
you will need to budget $200 for each tank before handing over the keys.
