Inspecting your Fuel Storage Tank: What to Look for

February 22, 2023

Outdoor and above-ground fuel storage tanks are an excellent way to safely store your Oilheat on your home's property. Your fuel tank is expertly engineered to last for years, and while issues are rare, a routine inspection will help catch a problem early and extend the lifespan of your fuel storage tank even further.

During your inspection, keep an eye out for:

  • Wet Spots - If you notice any wet spots underneath the tank or on its surface, this could be an indicator of trouble.
  • Unstable Legs - If the legs are uneven and the tank is not level, it will have trouble functioning at its full potential.
  • Rust and Dents - Corrosion or dent marks along the exterior of the tank could be indicators of problems coming from inside the tank.
  • Unprotected Lines - The tubing that connects the tank to your home can deteriorate. If you notice any cracks or splits in the rubber tubing, call us.

A full tank will help promote the health and efficiency of your Oilheat tank. Contact Tomasso Bros. Oil Online or call us at 908-351-0313 to place your fuel delivery.
