High crude prices, depleting oil stocks & increasing consumption is forcing oil industry in India to introduce blended fuel by blending petrol with ethanol. Moisture in the air in the vapor space of tanks tends to spoil the qualities of ethanol. Hence silica gel breathers are being installed in the vents of u/g tanks in retail outlets. When petrol is pumped out, outside air enters the tank through the vent & the moisture in this air is absorbed by the silica gel breather installed on the vent line.
