How much are the second-hand road tanks?
Ukrainian fuel market operators (as well as other shippers OM), willing to save money, are buying autocisterns from the EU with a very substantial mileage.

It turned out that more than half of autotankers imported into Ukraine are over 15 years old. However, the costs of customs clearance and autotanks maintenance can double its cost. As a result, an autotank with a mileage of about 1mn km costs the operator only a few thousand euros cheaper than new similar cistern of Ukrainian origin!
