In addition to the tank, a heating oil storage system includes the fill pipe and the vent pipe. The oil driver connects the hose from the delivery truck to the fill pipe when making a delivery of fuel.
The vent pipe releases air from the tank as it's filled. The terminus of the fill pipe and vent pipe are outdoors and near each other. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requires inside tanks to have a whistle (generally called a vent alarm) that indicates when, during a delivery, the tank reaches its fill point.
The utility will notify you of your official start day by mail. The start day is the first scheduled meter read that is at least 5 (electric) or 10 (gas) days after your application date. Remember, you will receive your first bill approximately 30 days after your start date.
