The Basic Gas Tank is a system for storing gasses created from various Mekanism machines. Gasses can be input into five of the six sides of the Basic Gas Tank. The sixth side is marked by a small dot and is used as the output. This transfer of gasses can be achieved by either by directly connecting a machine or through Pressurized Tubes.

If the player wishes to dispose of a portion of a gas stored in a Gas Tank, the button next to the name of the stored gas can be pressed. This will begin venting the gas out of the tank.

The Basic Gas Tank can also be used to fill or drain items that contain gasses such as Jetpacks, Scuba Tanks, or even other Gas Tanks. On the GUI of the Basic Gas Tank there are two slots. One is marked with a '+' and will fill items that a placed there. The other is marked with a '-' and will drain the gasses stored within items placed there.

If the Basic Gas Tank is right-clicked with a wrench, the Basic Gas Tank will be rotated. If the Basic Gas Tank is shift-clicked with the wrench it will be dismantled, saving its current levels of gas.

When the Basic Gas Tank is an item (i.e. in the player's inventory), it can be placed into various machines to either supply or fill with gas. This function is determined by the slot it is placed into.
