The Portable Tank is an item added in Thermal Expansion v2.1.0. It can hold 8000 mB (8 buckets) of liquid. Liquid can only be inserted or extracted from the top or bottom sides. A tank placed directly on top of another tank will self-configure its bottom side to auto-eject to the tank below.
Using a Crescent Hammer on a Portable Tank (the bottom face of the tank will turn orange) will change the bottom side to automatically eject liquid into whatever is below it, if possible. The tank cannot receive liquid on the bottom side while in this mode.
If dismantled (Sneak + Activate) with a Crescent Hammer, the Portable Tank will instantly be removed and the liquid will remain inside (works only in Survival mode).
- Liquid must be deliberately inserted into Portable Tanks. You cannot, for instance, gravity feed water from a BuildCraft tank above a Portable Tank; the liquid must be forced in somehow.
- Portable Tanks are extremely explosion resistant.
