Fuel Oil

4 posts in this topic

I have an old fuel oil tank that's in the ground. We haven't run fuel oil in the house for probably 20 years or so. I still have about 8" of oil in the tank. I have no idea how big the tank is. My plan is to pump out the remaining oil so I can fill the tank with sand and cap it off. Does anyone have some advice on how to remove it, and what I can/should do with the oil once I have it out? Thanks!!

You don't want to fill it with sand. The tank has to be removed and disposed of, hopefully it hasn't leaked. You should be able to bring the oil where you bring your drain oil.

Call a fuel oil Co.They will pump & dispose of contents,And will give a quote for removal of tank or lead you in the right direction.Your tank is now considered toxic waste and should be disposed of properly.

What ever you don't don't contact the state or county. This is one of those things that you want to handle on your own.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
