Hi Mike,

on type IXD2, the fuel oil was stored in tanks outside the pressure hull (in the saddle tanks). Some of them were fuel oil tanks only (Treibölbunker), some of them were used as fuel oil tanks, but when fuel oil was used, they were converted to ballast tanks (Tauchbunker) and some of them were regulating tanks, used for temporary fuel storage (Regelbunker).

I have marked location of tanks used for fuel oil storage:
