Wanted: old fuel oil tank

PostBy: ktm rider On: Wed Oct 10, 2007 6:58 pm

I am FINALLY getting around to hooking up my oil back up burner on my AHS multi fuel boiler. Does anyone in the South/Central Pa. area have an old fuel oil tank they want to sell????

hey that would probably work. I would assume it needs cleaned out first but no big deal there.
As luck would have it, I have a co worker who is from Schuylkill And he still travels up there alot. He owns some property up there I think. Anyhoo, He might be able to bring it back for me. How many Gallons is it?
BTW, my co workers name is John Jacobs. Ring any bells?
