View Full Version : oil tank location question

Hi -

Hallo -
can anyone enlighten me on the NFPA code. Specifically I need to know how close I can locate an above ground oil storage tank to the burner or electrical panel. I am aware of NEC clearances around the panel but I'd like to know about proximity of the oil tank to the burner assembly and electrical panel.
This is your standard oil tank in a single family dwelling. The local oil company doesn't want to place the tank where I had specified it. Now they don't want to move it, citing some code requirement. I suspect they just don't want to go to the extra labor.

Thanks ...
