How Much Does It Cost to Replace an Oil Tank?

The cost to replace an oil tank in Queens and the surrounding areas varies depending on three main factors:

  • Above vs. Below Ground: Depending on whether the oil tank location is above or below ground, the cost of removing and replacing the old oil tank will change. An underground replacement will cost more as extra labor time is needed for the harder-to-reach location and excavation.
  • Tank Type/Size: The type of tank you choose (material, size, warranty) will impact your overall cost.
  • Amount of Additional Materials: This includes the fuel line, which runs from your tank and feeds oil to your boiler, and fill and vent piping.

When Should I Replace My Oil Tank?

To keep oil tanks safe, functional, and performing at their best, homeowners should replace their oil tanks due to the following conditions:

  • Old Age: If your indoor oil tank is more than 25 years old or your outdoor oil tank is more than 15, you may need to replace it.
  • Visible Corrosion: Condensation can develop inside your tank and can begin to corrode the tank walls. Don't ignore this warning sign if you see corrosion on your tank.
  • Oil Breach: If you see or smell oil outside of the tank, it's time for a replacement to prevent damaging your property or environment.
  • Increased Oil Consumption: Are you experiencing spikes in your heating oil usage? This can indicate a fuel oil leak.
