AbstractFuel delivery tank-truck has rear and forward tanks which can independently receive, store and discharge fuel and a pair of tag wheels located to the rear of the drive wheels underneath the rear tank. The rear tank occupies the area conventionally occupied by the hose reel assembly which is moved forward adjacent the driver's cab. The truck leaves the fuel depot with both tanks full and with the tag wheels down. When the rear tank empties during the course of fuel delivery, a sensor in the rear tank is activated. This results in the automatic or manual set up of the system for making the fuel in the front tank available for delivery and for the raising of the tag wheels.
