What's in the pipeline?

With so much technology being introduced on forecourts and in stores it could be easy for attention to waver from the tanks and pipework buried underground, but constantly ensuring they are in good condition is one of the most crucial tasks facing dealers.

And with forecourt sites also becoming much sought-after real estate, any contamination will knock a huge amount off the value of the asset.
