Place a fluid pump directly next to where the tanker car will be -- pointing toward at loading stations, pointing away at unloading stations. You'll see a yellow square indication when you are in the correct location.

Can just put images on the forum, there is "attachments" tab below the text area.

Fluid wagons are incredibly picky about positioning, it is very hard to manually stop a tanker in the right spot, so it probably best to use a train stop. With a train stop any of the 6 adjacent tiles each side will work, but only one can connect each of the 3 tanks. When placing you can see which of them it will use.

Not strictly required, just easy to stop the train at one.
