Wiltshire-Based Fuel Distributor Adds New Isuzu F110.240 Tanker Truck To Its Fleet

Kinch Fuel Oils Ltd., a fuel distribution specialist with two locations in Wiltshire, recently purchased a new 11-tonne (12-U.S.-ton) Isuzu F110.240 tanker truck to replace a 7.5-t (8.3-U.S.-t) tanker, also an Isuzu. The new truck, which joins a fleet of 12 others, features a Road Tanker Northern 7,000-litre (1,849-gallon) tanker body with three compartments.

Kinch Fuel Oils expects the truck to accrue 30,000 kilometres (18,641 miles) per year and it’s covered by a seven-year repair and maintenance programme, as the company plans to keep it operation for at least that long. It will spend that time primarily hauling kerosene and other burning oils. The company decided to go with the 11-t Isuzu because of its ability to handle a higher payload while still being manoeuvrable enough to navigate tight spaces.

“More Operationally Efficient”

“With the increase in fuel oil tank capacity available on the higher-GVW Isuzu 11-tonner, we will now be able to cover up to 12 customer drops per day using this vehicle,” says Roy Kinch, director of Kinch Fuel Oils. “Our previous Isuzu certainly gave us good service over many years but by moving up the weight range, this has allowed us to become more operationally efficient. We have found there is also an added advantage as the drivers of this new Isuzu have already confirmed how easy it is to drive in both urban environments and country lanes, as well as it being really manoeuvrable on-site, allowing them to access properties with quite limited access.”
