Most people think that if the fuel tank on their property is small, then it doesn’t pose much of a risk. This is a common misconception that can have very negative consequences. Any tank, no matter its size, is regulated by state and federal laws if it contains combustible or flammable materials. Even a leak from the smallest fuel tank can cause significant contamination. By leaving an unused tank in place, you are not only risking damage to the environment, but you’ll be required by law to clean up the contamination which can be very expensive.
