PA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
recommends that homeowners routinely check their oil tanks
If the answer is “YES” to any of the following questions, call an oil burner technician for a more detailed
inspection and corrective measures.
Are the tank legs unstable or on a precarious foundation?
Is the tank vent clogged or restricted because of ice, snow or insect nest?
(Screened vents can prevent insect nest problems.)
Are there any signs of rust, weeps, wet spots or excessive dents on the tank’s surface?
Is the overfill whistle silent when the tank is being filled? (Ask your delivery person.)
Are there any drips or signs of leakage around the filter or valves?
Are there signs of spills around the fill pipe or the vent pipe?
Do the oil lines between the tank and the furnace run either under concrete or aboveground without
being encased in protective tubing?
Is the fuel-level gauge cracked, stuck or frozen…or are there signs of oil around it?
Is there danger of snow or ice falling on the tank?
Are you using more oil than normal?
