The Fluid Tank is a block used to store large amounts of fluids (eg. fuel, oil, water, lava and gases). It can also store fluids from other mods. they can be stacked to create bigger Fluid Tanks.

Usage

There are two ways to interact with them: right-clicking them with a empty or full canister or bucket, or connecting them to other tanks or machines using Fluid Pipes.

The Fluid Pipes by default input into the tank, but you can right-click the pipe with a Standard Wrench to change it into "pull mode" if you want it to extract fluids from the tank instead. Note: a pipe in "pull mode" needs to be used with another pipe in standard (input) mode. So if you want to pump fluids from a tank to another tank, your pipe needs to be minimum 2 blocks long.

If you break a Fluid Tank, only one source block will remain. So empty your Fluid Tanks before breaking them!

Chaining

Fluid Tanks will attach to each other if stacked vertically, but not horizontally.Therefore, to store large amounts of fluid without the need for an incredibly tall base, it is recommended to chain them together using Fluid Pipes. One end tank will become an "input" and the other end an "output", so be careful which way round you chain them!
