Above deck range extender fuel bladders

ATL creates a large variety of collapsible, on-deck fuel bladder tanks for yachts and tenders. ATL's economical "Petro-Flex" pillow tanks and all-new “FueLocker” range-extension tanks are ideal solutions for longer voyages requiring high fuel consumption. These boat bladders can also be used to "stock up" on lower cost or more reliable, higher quality fuel when at port. These bladders may also be used to ferry aircraft, feed fuel to power generators, transport petroleum products, and can even provide emergency flotation aid.

Below deck OEM & replacement fuel bladders

ATL also designs and manufacturers fuel bladder tanks for below deck installations. ATL can assist with new OEM fuel bladder tanks to replace failed tanks and even custom fuel (and water) bladder tanks for live wells, fishing boxes, lockers, etc. ATL's fuel bladder materials resist all fuels including gasoline, gasoline/ethanol blends, diesel, bio-diesel and 100% ethanol.

Proven system

Having the freedom of component options when designing high speed vessel's is a must, and this is evermore critical in fuel tank design.

With the ATL proven system we have the ability to analyze the benefits of bladder tanks over traditional metallic or fully integrated tanks on a project specific bases, all the while knowing that the quality and durability of the ATL products are never questioned.

To date we have trialed and tested ATL tanks on a array of platforms and we will continue to do so.

Bullet proof!

, . Justified 2 - 07/03/2014-09:41
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

A friend of mine purchased a 59’ Marquis in West Palm Beach last year and asked me to deliver it for him. In mid-May of 2012 we went from WPB over to West Bahama Marina, spent the night there and then traveled south around Hole in the Wall and up north to Boat Harbour in the Abacos. We spent the night there and fueled up the next morning for the trip to Bermuda. It took us 76 hours and we got into some sloppy seas the second night. Your bladders, sitting on top of the mats that they came with, stayed exactly in place. The combination of the straps that you supply as well as the mats worked perfectly. Look at the aft bladder….it’s on an incline but it didn't move an inch!!! Those things are bullet proof!

800 gals in the main tanks, 650 gals in two 325 gal poly tanks in the cockpit and two of your 150 gal bladders on the bow did the trick. We arrived with about 150 gallons to spare in the main tanks after everything on deck had been transferred.

No more red jugs

, Owner 50 Gallon ATL FueLocker - 07/03/2014-09:39

Please thank Craig for helping me with a new ATL 50 gallon FueLocker. We are heading out to San Clemente Island, Ca. tomorrow where I normally would have a bunch of Jerry Cans stored with gas but this morning I filled up my new FueLocker very easily at the dock & I actually am looking forward to re-fueling when we arrive at our anchorage tomorrow afternoon where normally I have dreaded it.

Please send my thanks to Craig as he was very accommodating with my small purchase and he included a great set of back up sun glasses that are just as good as my Maui Jims, so thank you so much for all of that. No more red jugs bungeed on the top of the cabin.

Very happy

I was deeply impressed with the Aero Tec bladder. It was well made, well packaged, and complete with all the necessary parts. Usually there's a shopping list necessary to make a bladder workable, but yours included chafe guards, tie down straps, instructions, and everything else save a hose. I'm happy to have it.

Far superior to others

Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

The custom fuel bladder you designed and built for the FREEDOM is perfect!

It fits in the fishbox it was designed for like a glove. It holds 250 gallons filled and empty it folds up and stows away. This will give us peace of mind on those long trips when we would normally have to "stretch" our fuel.

Your product is far superior to others I have used in the past. THANKS ATL!!

A better and safer boating experience

Your Portable Fuel Bladders are awesome! I will never again leave port on a “Bluewater” crossing without one as part of my yacht accessory gear.

As you were aware we at Regal Marine Industries were planning an extended Bluewater trip all the way out to the West Indies in the Caribbean starting from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Fuel stops are very scarce between the Exuma Islands and the Dominican Republic which makes trip planning in a 52 foot powerboat a challenge with good weather and seas. Our trip was over 1800 miles in length one way at a Fuel cost of over $13,000. Well I’m back from the trip now and can’t say enough about ATL Fuel Bladders as a boating accessory.

The peace of mind your bladder provided with an extra 150 gallons aboard was greatly appreciated. In fact it allowed us to make some side trips to remote anchorages that perhaps only sailboaters find and enjoy! I can truly say that ATL Fuel Bladders helped us find our island paradise, enjoy it and get back without fuel reserve concerns. Not to mention the savings on fuel cost when we were able to buy larger quantities at better prices.

Their ease of use and perhaps more importantly their stowability when not in use were great factors in our choosing ATL bladders for our experience. Using the automatic siphon approach to emptying the tank into the boats own fuel tank was so easy and efficient it became normal routine.

Thanks for providing our industry with a truly useful and rugged niche product that adds value to the Bluewater Boating experience! I will highly recommend your product to our Regal customers in search of a better and safer boating experience!

Extremely easy to use

ATL Range Extending Bladder Tanks are the perfect option for traveling sportfishing boats needing extra fuel capacity.

Not only are they built extremely well, they are easy to use and easier to stow once the fuel is consumed.

Economically its a great investment for boats traveling to the Bahamas by hedging your fuel cost with the extra capacity purchased with domestic fuel prices.

Helps reduce expensive fuel costs

, Captain & Owner Crackerjack Sportfishing Charters - 07/03/2014-09:33
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

My ATL FueLocker has extended the safe range of our boat by 30%.

It has proven to be durable, safe and easy to use, even in the difficult conditions we see in Alaska. We use it on every trip and has allowed us to reach fishing grounds that are beyond the range of any other boats in our area.

In Alaska, the more remote the location, the more expensive fuel becomes. The ATL Fuel Locker paid for itself in the first season by reducing our dependence on remote and expensive fuel sources.

I would recommend the ATL FueLocker to anyone looking to travel farther between trips to the fuel dock.

Great quality

When we were looking to extend the range of our team boat we began to research fuel bladder systems. Time and time again ATL was recommended to us. We ended up with a 100 gallon ATL Fuel Locker and could not be happier.

The quality of the product is obvious as soon as you take it out of the packaging. ATL uses nothing but top notch materials and hardware to build a product that should last for many years to come. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to extend the range of their boat.

Very reasonably priced

I found Aero Tec Laboratories (ATL), makers of just what I needed. They had been filling this need for the motorsports, aviation, military and marine industries for 45 years. Their informative website and helpful staff made exploring the options painless. I figured the pain would be in the price since it said boat and custom. To my pleasant surprise it was very reasonable and affordable. We immediately ordered a custom 110-gallon fuel bladder. It fit perfectly in our chosen spot on the deck. It lays low on the deck and therefore has a more stable center of gravity.
