Bell Fuels has consistent supply of product at all times. We also have storage capacities of over 1.5 million gallons of diesel fuel.
Bell Fuels Truck Fleet
All petroleum distribution companies deliver their gasoline and diesel fuel products via truck transportation. Petroleum trucks are categorized by two basic sizes: transport and tank wagon. The word transport and tank wagon describe the general capacity of the size of the “tanker” that the truck is hauling.
Some petroleum distribution truck fleets rely heavily on transport tankers, while other petroleum companies mostly maintain tank wagon-sized tankers.
Bell Fuels owns and operates a delivery fleet that maintains both transport and tank wagon trucks. It is Bell’s belief that versatility of delivery is a key component to successfully serving our customers’ wide variety of needs.
• Transport Deliveries: Typical capacity 8,000 gallons. Diesel fuel is by volume heavier than gasoline, so transport loads of diesel are 7,000 gallons or less. Gasoline deliveries can be maximized at full load, i.e. 8,000 gallons.
• Tank Wagon Deliveries: Any delivery from 100 to 4,000 gallons.
If equipment and driver time are at a Premium for your company, consider Bell’s on-site fueling service. Our service comes to your location anytime, day or night, pumping fuel directly into the customer’s diesel vehicles.
Bell Fuels is licensed through the Office of the State Fire Marshall as a mobile fueling contractor. Bell drivers are trained in all aspects of providing a mobile fueling service for your fleet of trucks and/or your off-road construction equipment.

• Premium D-2 “trouble-free” diesel fuel.
• Availability: Your schedule becomes our schedule.
Bell Fuels is privileged to supply the majority of the diesel fuel for the touring vessels docked at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
Marine fueling requires the utmost care and precaution to be taken during a fuel delivery in order to protect Chicago’s prestigious lakefront.
We recognize that fueling vessels on a waterway is a specialty niche in the petroleum business, but it is a service of long standing in our company and it represents the versatility of Bell’s operations and delivery capabilities.
