    Well, if they are empty (actually a little oil remains in the tanks), the tanks could be filled with fumes (unless some kind of ventilation is running), which could make them quite explosive.

    That is true.

    When fully loaded, tankers are very resistant to even anti-ship missiles, which was demonstrated during the Iran-Iraq-US "tanker wars".

    Tankers don't travel like that. The tanks are either filled with cargo or inert gas, unless they're being inspected, in which case they're filled with normal air.
