Domestic oil tank sizes are provided in litres or gallons and represent the capacity of the oil tank.
External dimensions are in millimetres or inches. Installers, architects and developers plan the space required for the installation of your tank using these measurements. If you are replacing your oil tank, you will also need to consider the size of base your current oil tank sits on. There are also regulations regarding the size and materials used for oil tank bases. (See below).
When choosing a tank, remember that rounded tanks can be wider across the middle than at the base. The base will require sufficient space to safely hold the tank plus a border. The siting of the tank will be determined from the widest outside edges.
