|This article is about Ender Tank from EnderStorage. You may be looking for Tank from BuildCraft 3.|
The Ender Tank offers stationary storage for up to 16 buckets of a single liquid. Like the Ender Chest, it has three wool pads on top which can be manipulated by right-clicking each one with a dye. Tanks with matching colors will share liquids between them, even across dimensions. Additionally, right-clicking the dial with a diamond will set that tank to a 'private' network for that player, change the dial to a diamond color, and show your username in the tooltip. A private Ender Tank will not share any liquids with any public tank, or any private tank from another user, even if the colored pads match.
Note that while using an Ender Tank with no diamond without additional security plugins or mods, there is nothing stopping someone else on a server from copying your tank's colors and taking your liquid. If you don't have diamonds to spare, the best thing to do would be to pick an obscure combination of colors and hide it out of sight, so nobody can see the colors. With three pads there are 4096 different possible combinations of the 16 dyes, making it very unlikely - but still possible - for someone to randomly guess the right colors.
When using an Ender Tank and a chunk loader in the same chunk (16x16), the chunk can be reset and you will lose everything that was in that chunk.
Possible fix: have a chunk loader in a chunk next to it, but increase the size of chunk loading to include the nearby chunks (Use NEI's F7 & F10 modes).
NOTE: 1.5.2 and above; chicken_bones's chunk loader should NOT cause any resets anymore.
An example of use would be an easy way to send Lava from the Nether to the Overworld, for use in Thermal Generators. Tanks with different colors will not share liquids, allowing for many different networks.
On the front of the tank is a small dial with an orange and a blue side. Right clicking the dial will spin the dial, toggling between orange and blue. When blue is up, the tank will accept liquid being pumped into it, and liquid can only be pumped out by a wooden or emerald Fluid Pipe powered by an engine, or a Fluiduct with a Pneumatic Servo. When orange is up, the tank will not accept liquid, but will output liquid all on its own, without a pump, into any Fluid Pipe. Upon receiving a Redstone signal the dial on the tank will flip, and upon losing the signal the dial will flip back.
