Illinois incorporates by reference all the federal hazardous materials regulations except for requirements for nonbulk fuel tank packaging. In Illinois, a nonspecification metal tank with a capacity of less than 450 liters (119 gallons) may be used in the intrastate transportation of flammable liquid petroleum if the containers are tanks constructed of 18 gauge or heavier steel or equivalent gauge aluminum, securely fastened to the vehicle, electrically bonded to the frame of the vehicle, and protected against leakage or damage in the event of a turnover.

The tanks may not be drained by gravity. Top mounted pumps must be designed and labeled for use with flammable and combustible liquids and may not be higher than the highest point of the vehicle or roll bars.

Flammable liquid petroleum products on a single vehicle may not exceed 450 liters.
