SP "diamond-s" tanks were frequently seen at the C&H sugar refinery at Crockett, California. It is my understanding that they were restricted to liquid sugar service . . .
True, and they were so stenciled for a number of years.

Molasses I know nothing about. I wonder if they were used by other SP-served sugar refiners, say Spreckles or Holly?
Yes. I have photos at Spreckels (note spelling), and I understand they were used by Imperial Sugar at Sugar Land, Texas also, and by an ASRX facility at Arlington (does anyone know about the latter?).
