New Online Configuration Tool Offers Instant Tank Customization

Portland, Ore., March 21, 2012 – Alliance Truck Parts, a leading provider of replacement parts for the commercial transportation industry, now offers cylindrical fuel tank replacements for all makes of medium- and heavy-duty trucks. The new replacement fuel tanks meet or exceed OEM specifications and are 100 percent leak-tested to ensure consistent product quality.

A new online configuration tool available at allows customers to specify truck make, tank capacity, finish and fill-neck placement. The result is an Alliance Truck Parts part number and configuration summary that can immediately be printed for order at any Freightliner, Sterling or Western Star dealership, regardless of truck make or model.

The online configuration tool together with distribution through more than 800 retail locations across the U.S. and Canada contributes to a significant advantage in lead-time for replacement fuel tanks. Standard lead time is four weeks, and choosing expedited service can fulfill a tank order in as little as two to four days.
