What are these types of tank trucks?
There are two basic types of tanker trucks:Crude oil tankers and product tankers. Tankers transport large amounts of unrefined crude from the well to the refineries. Product tankers, generally much smaller, were designed to transport refined products from refineries to points near consumer markets.
LR2 (long range 2), which typically have 115,000 deadweight tonnes (dwt), are more flexible than Aframax vessels and can offer significant advantages in terms of size and cost efficiency.
There are three main sizes of tank trucks:light, medium and heavy, with most varieties falling into Class 8, meaning they have a gross vehicle weight rating in excess of 33,000 pounds.
Product and Classes of Oil Tankers: Oil tankers can transport any liquefied material in bulk, depending on the material they transport they are classified as follows:asphalt/bitumen conveyor; bunker tankers; crude tanker; LNG/LPG tankers; product tank truck; chemical tankers; Other tankers; etc.
- Chemical tankers - chemical tankers and oil tankers - methanol tankers.
- Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Tank: Semi-Refrigerated/Fully Pressurized/Full Ref.
- Buques Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) cistern type C independent ...
- Compressed natural gas (CNG) tank.
- Floating Production Storage and Unloading Vessel (FLNG)
An LR1 tanker typically carries 55,000 tonnes of naphtha or 60,000-65,000 tonnes of distillates, while LR2 tankers can hold 75,000 tonnes of naphtha or up to 90,000 tonnes of distillates. MR tankers transport gasoline in 35,000-tonne containers and up to 40,000 tons of distillates.
55 000–79 999 TPM:long haul 1(LR1) 80.000–159.999 DWT: Long Range 2 (LR2) 160.000–319.999 DWT: Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) 320.000–549.999 DWT: Ultra Large Crude Carrier (ULCC)
One of the most flexible ship types is the LR2. HeLong haul bi-product tanker(LR2) ranges in size from 105,000 to 115,000 dwt and is the largest tanker dedicated to clean petroleum products.
In general, more than two settling tanks are present and arranged as part of the engine room bulkhead on a ship. The oil from the fuel tank is transferred to the settling tank. The diesel settling tank can be arranged as a double floor tank in the engine room.

What are the six tanker classifications?
|size / rank||WLL (DWT)||Average dimension (length | height | draft in feet)|
