New rules for above ground oil tanks took effect on August 15th, 2017. Under these regulations, Vermont's above ground heating oil and kerosene tanks must be inspected every three years.

It is our job to make sure that your tank complies with the new regulations – most of which have been in place for some time. If you’re concerned about your tank, please give us a call. We will schedule a tank inspection as part of your next oil or kerosene delivery. Please note that we also include tank inspections as part of our annual tune-ups.

If you’re concerned about the cost of repairing tank fittings or replacing your oil tank, let us know. We’ll come up with a plan that will get the job done and stay within your budget. State grants to cover the tank replacement costs are sometimes available for those on a limited income. Our Co-op Oil Bank may also be able to help.

For more information, give us a call at (802) 860-4090, send an email, or click here for more information from the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association.

  • Committed to Reducing Fossil Fuel Footprint

    My wife and I are committed to reducing our fossil energy footprint, and have been heating our home with wood, trying to use our old oil burner only as backup. Unfortunately, this leaves some cold corners in the house, including our kid's room.
