A fire engine differs from type to type. There are more than ten different types of fire engines, each of it especially designed to respond to a certain type of fire, such as urban fires, wildfires, fires at height, rural fires or urban fires on narrow streets. Some fire apparatus have very big configuration to carry much water and much equipment, while others have smaller configuration, more flexible and more suitable for rough terrains. Firetruck manufacturers produce many types of fire apparatus, with different dimensions for the gas tank.
The capacity of the gas tank
A classic fire apparatus is produced with a 20 to 40 gallons fuel tank. However, many fire departments customize their vehicles and choose a bigger capacity for fuel. So, the answer to this question cannot be completely determined, as every fire department requests a certain capacity, according to their needs. For example, a 1500 GPM Type 1 fire truck can have 90 gallons of gas, while a 2500 gallons tender type 1 can have a 75-gallon gasoline tank. Some vehicles have more than 100 gallons of gas capacity.
