I have two 15000 gallon diesel fuel tanks side by side each

Customer Question

I have two 15000 gallon diesel fuel tanks side by side each has two fuel pumps in them. We are in a discussion as to wether they need to have explosion proof fitting as their fumes are not explosive but the fuel can be ignited with a flame. A code section of class or division or if it even needs to have expulsion proof fitting. The feeds stub out of the slab that the tanks sit on
