We offer a wide range of high-quality fuel storage tanks to fit your needs.

fuel oil tank

If you heat your home with propane or oil, you need a safe and convenient place to store your fuel. Fuel storage tanks from Shipley Energy have been designed to ensure that your fuel is safely contained, and have proven themselves over decades of use.

We feature a wide selection of solidly constructed, double-wall fuel oil tanks that provide environmental safety and quality for you and your family, along with a 10-year limited warranty for your protection and peace of mind.

Heating Oil Tanks

Shipley Energy also offers a large assortment of indoor and outdoor residential oil tanks. Indoor tanks that are installed in a basement or utility room are generally preferable to outdoor tanks, particularly in colder climates where the risk of fuel line freezing is high.

Our new home fuel oil tank models have a smaller footprint than older models and are more compact. This gives you greater flexibility when determining the best spot on your property for an oil tank installation.

When to Replace Your Heating Oil Tank

Oil tanks are like any other piece of equipment — they wear out over time. Since you never want to be without heat when you need it, it's important to be proactive as your tank ages. Most residential oil tanks last between 15 and 20 years, or longer if maintained well. If you don't know the age of your tank, you should have it assessed by a knowledgeable technician.

Some of the warning signs our team will look for include:

  • Corrosion, dents, and other wear and tear: These issues may be the result of time, or they could indicate a more severe problem that requires replacement.
  • Oil runs or wet spots below or near the tank: Though harder to identify in outdoor systems, wet spots can be the result of leaks or other damage.
  • Installation problems such as unstable legs: If your oil tank wasn't installed correctly to begin with, it won't deliver the performance and reliability you expect of it. Unstable legs are one of the most commons signs of installation issues in a fuel oil tank.

In addition to a visual inspection, our technicians will test your tank's venting, gauges, fuel lines, and other components. We can also review your historical fuel use to identify potential problems — such as a sudden spike in consumption with no other explanation.

In everything we do, our goal is to help you make informed choices. We won't recommend replacing your heating oil tank if we don't think it's the right thing for your home. If there's any uncertainty about the decision, we'll go over the pros and cons of each option with you.
