Bear in mind that heating oil is a target for thieves if tank is outside.
Also plastic tanks should be painted (white is best) to extend their lives. UV in sunlight will otherwise crack them within about 5 years.
Tanks need to "breathe" so ensure there is a vent hole to let air in as oil is pumped out, otherwise tank will collapse or suck rainwater in (as mine did).

Tanks are normally 500 or 1000 litres - written on the side of the tank.
As Stalos said, fill it up if you can afford to.

Central Heating Oil

Just moved to Crete and staying in a two bedroom house with living room and large kitchen and bathroom (approx 70m square). We're looking to buy some oil for the central heating system, but really not sure how much to buy. Does anybody on these forums have some advice for us on how much to buy please?
