Hello Everyone,

I just wanted your thoughts on this oil tank.

Not leaking but on one pic it looks like the oil making its way through to the surface - old tank. No?
I normally wouldn't think that (from the front view) it would be an issue but that side picture makes me think it should be checked out.

Thanks everybody.

It looks old and could use a paint job but I don't see a problem with it. The major problems with old oil tanks is when they are underground. If you are unsure about its condition request a certification as to its condition

I don't smell anything at all. I did switch to Toms natural deodorant though. Not to deviate from this post but that deodorant clearly doesn't work.

Don't think it's a problem unless you light a cigarette next to it :) LOL
