Excel lookup - Tank Volume Puzzle - Sum the volumes in tanks based on type when the list order changes

We have storage tanks that are tracked by two main types and one group of other types.
The order of the list changes as the tanks are moved around the district.
Using  vlookup on type 1 and 2 we can keep track of the high priority volumes.
How would I total the volumes in all other types into one cell ?Tank-Puzzle.xlsm

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Enter the formula in D13 and copy it down.
