How long do heating oil tanks last?

The average lifespan of a fuel oil tank is around 10 to 15 years, depending on how well the tank is maintained. Security is also important as heating oil can be vulnerable to theft as a precious fuel source.

A bulk LPG tank has a service life of 30 years before it needs to be replaced. From a safety point of view, LPG is almost impossible to steal from a bulk tank and can be stored in an above ground or underground tank.

If you use Flogas to heat your off-grid home, one of our engineers will perform a statutory inspection of your bulk LPG tank every 10 years.

If you’re thinking of switching from heating oil, we can help with an oil to gas conversion. Contact us today for more information on how to join the family of Flo.
