The aim of this work is to describe chemical substances contained in crude oils and fuels, the conditions in which petroleum products (fuels) are corrosive to metals; corrosion mechanisms in fuels; which parts of storage tanks containing crude oils and fuels undergo corrosion; dependence of corrosion in tanks on type of fuels; bifouels (bioalcohols and biodiesel); corrosion of metals in biofuels; anti-corrosion preventive measures; selecting of coatings for inner surfaces of tanks containing fuels; The results are summarized in the book "Corrosion in Systems for Transportation and Storage of Petroleum Products and Biofuels" published by Springer.
