|Rusty Stumps Tank|
I needed a small oil tank to supply my pump house. I ordered one from Rusty Stumps – Product ID: C2512 – 200 Gallon Oil Storage Tank
When it arrived I was concerned that it might be too small. To be honest I hadn’t put much thought into the size I needed. This is a 200 gallon tank and measures .450″ wide x 1″ tall x 1.480″ long. That translates to 21-1/2″ x 48″ x 71″ so I guess I need to adjust my eyesight some.
Well. If we figure that a standard oil barrel is 42 US gallons then they are talking about a 200-400 gallon tank. This means the Rusty Stumps 200 gallon tank will work fine – in fact – exactly as needed. The larger tank mounted on the bents can act as the main storage tank while the 200 gallon tank will be the reservoir tank. The purpose is to prevent flooding a building with oil as the reservoir tank will be below the level of the burners.
