Hey Robb
Have you tried calling around to scrap yards?
Or maybe a company in your area that does oil tank installs. They might have some old ones kickin' around

When an oil tank is taken out of service it is usually cut open and cleaned out before it can be scrapped. Old Kerosene tanks are the cleanest inside. Talk to a few servicemen that work for oil companies in your area. They might be happy to pass one along to you but remember there is a lot of oil mixed with sludge in old #2 fuel oil tanks. (5 to 10 gallons worth or real garbage)
