Even with my tanks in the shop, @ 50*F, .. the General oil filter has to be changed twice a year as the oil is so dirty these days it clogs so bad nothing comes out at the furnace that's 10 feet lower in the basement.

Ask your distributor for a couple of bottles of conditioner when they come to fill...or hit CTC for a couple bottles.
Theres your answer right there.

Kleenflo #993 or use methyl hydrate as a water remover
Thats whats in the conditioner Jeff.
We use it for the oil tank and the tractor.
Does the job just fine.
Desship.just make sure it says DIESIL on the container bottle.

.... been fighting mine all night and finally found that the "tech" that installed the burner controller used too long of screws and the tips were into the circuit board trace lines grounding it out intermitantly.

and settles back when the vehicle is not moving it would help in the lines and filter where the fuel is moving but will not remove all the water.
As furnace tanks are mounted with the tap high you probably have at least a couple gal of water and the only way I would think you can be sure of getting it would be to siphon or pump it out.

Inside install is legal to code.. but many insurance companies won't cover you if it's inside. Catch 22
yeah I kinda know that first hand the insurance company forced my parents to change out the oil tank (it was spotless with no rust at all) at 25 years or the insurance would be cancelled. it costed $800 to change out and the installer was talking to my dad how good the tank was that he would just install at a nother location and re-certify it
kick in the teeth
why not re-certify the old one
