I don't know if I have water in my tanks but I'd like to add something
(methanol?) to them to make sure I don't by adding something (what's the
best choice?) prior to the next filling. I have three steel 330 gallon
tanks of #2 fuel oil in my basement connected in parallel feeding a
furnace fired at 2 gph flow rate.
I've asked several local oil dealers and discovered that they don't add
anything, nor do they stock any additives.
I'll second that. Even Dri-Gas will do the trick.
If your tanks are in the basement, I wouldn't worry too much about getting
water in them. Sure, over the years you may get condensation, but it
wouldn't be much. Do you have a way of "sticking" (measuring) the tank? They
make a water paste that you smear on the end of a stick and will change
colors if water is present.
Still can't believe an oil company doesn't have any type of additive.....
