    If it's a tar kettle I would probably foam it.

    Are you talking about a tanker that is pulled by a road tractor also known as a fuel tanker, be it for gasoline, diesel or fuel oil, even may a fuel oil truck??

    If so and the fire is on the top of that tanker at the fill holes, closed the fill hatches. At most loading terminals and racks there is an extinguishing agent , like at restaurants for hood s and ranges that will drop the fused link and discharge the agent on the rack and tanker truck trailer.

    I don't understand the original question
    My thoughts exactly

    I have seen a tanker drop red retardant onto the roof of a neighboring districts brand new white command vehicle. It was the proper color at least for a little while.
    My wise and profound comments and opinions are mine alone and are in no way associated with any other individual or group.
