Liquids may be transferred to and from Portable Tanks using Liquiduct, Fluid Pipe, or the EnderIO Fluid Conduit and/or Pressurized Fluid Conduit. The Portable Tank is explosion resistant with a blast value of 360. The Tank with its content is removed for transport by 'Shift+Right-clicking' with the Crescent Hammer or Yeta Wrench.
