    FUEL & DELIVERY

    EXTENSIVE CARDLOCK SYSTEM & BULK PLANTS

    • Cardlocks are automated fueling sites designed specifically for commercial fleet vehicles. Castle Fuels leverages a network of cardlocks, many of which are open 24 hours a day, giving your business the convenience and efficiency you deserve and require. With a Castle Fuels card you can set limits on purchases, control which products can be purchased, and set time-frames for use. On the back end you’ll see reporting of fuel economy and other key numbers for management.

    ON-SITE MOBILE EQUIPMENT REFUELLING

    • Truck fleets that operate in and through Beautiful British Columbia know that Castle Fuels has a strong network of on-site fleet fueling, something that can save a company thousands in labour costs and increasing productivity – and your bottom line. We bring top-quality bulk fuel right to your trucks’ fuel tanks. And we do this either at your location where the fleet is parked, or delivering to your trucks when they’re out in the field. 
    • With this level of efficiency you’ll experience seamless service, enabling your fleet to spend more time on the road where you’re generating revenue. That’s a lot better than trucks incurring down-time at the fuel bar. We can deliver both DEF and bulk fuel to your fleet. Just let us know when and where!

    TANK AND PUMPS FOR RENT OR SALE

    • We rent and sell a variety of tanks and pumps. If what you see listed here doesn’t include what you’re looking for, get in touch with us – we either have it or can source it for you in short order.
    • Our lineup of tanks features certified single wall tanks & double wall tanks, exempt diesel tanks, and several types of fuel storage tanks which can be found on our fuel storage tank page. The single and double wall tanks we carry are certified by Transport Canada and are designed and rigidly tested for the transportation of petroleum fuels.
    • On the pump side, we offer fuel transfer pumps, hand pumps, air operated lube pumps, air operated grease pumps and much more. Our fuel transfer pumps are heavy-duty reliable equipment that come with a two-year warranty and are UL certified.
    Bulk DEF

    DEDICATED BULK DEF DELIVERY

    • We serve BC’s Interior with a wide network of bulk DEF dispensing. Let Castle Fuels support your fleet’s needs when it comes to DEF.
    • We offer DEF at most of our pumping stations. When your trucks pull in for diesel, they can get DEF on the go as well. Why not take advantage of our bulk DEF delivery service? We can bring DEF to your fleet in virtually any location across the BC Interior.
    • DEF tank refills cannot be avoided. Going empty on DEF is pretty much the same as running out of diesel fuel – since trucks now have regulators that limit them to extremely slow speeds once the DEF tank runs dry.
    • Make sure your fleet stays on the road and running smoothly, generating revenue for you, but ensuring that you’ve got more than adequate supply of DEF.

    STORAGE TANK AND PUMP OPTIONS FOR RENT OR SALE

    HISTORY OF CANAL FLATS

    Canal Flats

    Canal Flats is on Highway 93/95, between Skookumchuck and Fairmont Hot Springs, in the Kootenay River Valley. In 2020, there were 700. The village’s primary industry for nearly a century was timber, but in 2015 the sawmill stopped. In 2018, an enterprising group bought 1000 acres and established the Columbia Lake Technology Center and PodTech, a data centre design, build, and operation firm. Iris Energy, an Australian corporation, bought PodTech in January 2020 and is rapidly expanding its activities.

    Canal Flats is the starting point for numerous backcountry provincial parks, including Whiteswan and Top of the World. Canal Flats is 1 km from the southern end of Columbia Lake, the source of the Columbia River, which flows north to Kinbasket Lake before turning south to Astoria, Oregon (1,960 km). Columbia Lake is surrounded by the Purcell Mountains to the west and the Rocky Mountains to the east. For pre-contact native Americans and early western explorers, the Kootenay River Valley was an important route.

    Canal Flats, a 1.2-mile (2-km) wide berm of land, separates the Columbia’s northern and southern headwaters. The Kootenay River flows into the US before returning north to join the Columbia near Castlegar, BC.

    David Thompson, who went through the area in 1808, dubbed it McGillivray’s Portage. Near Tilley Memorial Park (previously Canal Flats Provincial Park) are the ruins of an 1889 canal that connected Columbia Lake and the surrounding Kootenay River, hence the post office’s name of Canal Flats.
