The temperature of fuel oil in bunker storage tanks should be above 35 deg C to achieve viscosity, required for pumping, and below 40 degrees C to keep cargo safe.

At no circumstances, the HFO tanks temperature may be kept close to flashpoint (check fuel spec and analysis results for actual value)
