    Default Plastic Residential Heating Oil Tanks

    Any one have any experience or comments on Plastic Oil Tanks? Meet US Code? Pros/Cons/Issues. What happens to a plastic oil storage tank in a fire? Am I correct to assume that they will outlast a steel tank corrosion-wise? Does the plastic react to oil - I assume not, but.. Can they rupture under normal use?
