- Oil Storage Tanks give you the ability to safely store the heating oil your home will need, for whenever you might need it. Your storage tank is a "stocked pantry" for your heating system.
- Tanks may be installed in a basement, utility room, garage, outside, or underground.
- New tanks are made from steel or fiberglass, or with a ‘double wall’ consisting of one steel and one plastic, to withstand deterioration and last for decades.
- In the U.S., all underground residential heating oil tanks, regardless of size, are exempt from all federal and many state regulations. Oil storage systems must comply with local fire and building ordinances. For questions about a particular installation, call the local building department or a qualified heating contractor.

- Bioheat® fuel is produced from domestically-grown renewable resources and refined in the United States.
- Biodiesel and Bioheat® fuel create thousands of U.S. jobs throughout the entire production and distribution chain. According to a recent economic study, this year’s rejuvenated biodiesel production will support more than 31,000 U.S. jobs and generate income of nearly $1.7 billion to be circulated throughout the economy. It also is expected to generate an estimated $345 million in federal tax revenue and $283 million in state and local tax revenues.
