Heating Oil Tanks
Oil Tank Replacement
Bunded and single skin
If your heating oil tank is more than 10 years old, it's time to consider a replacement.
A heating oil tank that bursts or cracks will cause damage to human health, buildings and/or the environment.
The financial costs of an oil leak can run into hundreds of thousands of euro, and if the tank is proven to be old and weathered the insurance company may refuse to pay out.
New Tanks in New Builds
Most newer builds are designed to run on heat pumps with oil as a back-up.
The difference in price between a 650 litre tank and 1100 or 1200 litre tank is small. Unless there is a space limitation, we recommend the larger tank. This gives you the option to fill the tank at the most competitive rate on offer at any time, with any distributor, anywhere in Ireland.
Tanks for Home Heating
At Glen Fuels, we always recommend:
- Double skinned (bunded) oil tank as this protects your property and surrounding environment from damage if the inner skin starts to leak
- If buying a single skin oil tank, check with your local Council and your home insurer first
Tanks for home heating come in different shapes and sizes -

I have eight inches of oil in my tank, will I run out tonight as it’s very cold?in Oil Tank FAQs
You should not run out of oil tonight. You may run out depending on the distance from your tank to your burner, the height differential from your tank to the burner and the capacity of your tank. You should contact your local depot for a delivery as quickly as possible.
