    An OTR Truck Driver for five years said that a tanker can hold 8,000-12,000 gallons depending on the truck, part of the country, and set-up.

    This is the breakdown for tanker ships:
    10,000–24,999 DWT: General Purpose tanker
    25,000–44,999 DWT: Medium Range tanker
    45,000–79,999 DWT: Large Range 1 (LR1)
    80,000–159,999 DWT: Large Range 2 (LR2)
    160,000–319,999 DWT: Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC)
    320,000–549,999 DWT: Ultra Large Crude Carrier (ULCC)
