Liquid Fuel Carrier License:
If a carrier is hauling pure alcohol, are they required to be a licensed liquid fuel carrier?
K.S.A. 55-507 states that no person shall transport any liquid fuels without having first a valid liquid fuel carrier's license. Pure alcohol meets the definition of a liquid fuel.
Who is required to have a Liquid Fuel Carrier License?
You will need a Liquid Fuel Carrier License if you wish to:
· Transport motor fuel, including aviation fuel, within the state of Kansas in quantities of 3,500 gallons or more;
· Transport across the state line in quantities of 120 gallons or more; or
· Pick up fuel from the refinery, pipeline, or place of manufacture, regardless of quantity.
What if I need a Liquid Fuel Carrier License permit for a one-time trip?
Licensed liquid fuel carriers can purchase a $5 trip permit for new vehicles, substitute vehicles used temporarily, or emergency purposes. A non-licensed carrier may obtain a trip permit for vehicles entering the state on an occasional trip or vehicles in temporary service. Trip permits can be obtained by calling the Kansas Department of Revenue at 785-271-3145.
