Actually, I would have put 3 of the tanks in if I could have.  I have a 
1000 gal inground that is getting replaced.  I loved it, normally I would 
fill it up once in Aug (when oil was cheapest) and it could get me through 
the year, with maybe a small refill somewhere in march.

The more oil you can store, means you can buy it when it's cheapest.

I'd be more worried about how to be able to afford 720 gallons of long does that last?

When I was a kid growing up in Florida, we had an above-ground tank,
that was maybe 100 gallons.  Now the house at Corrosion Acres is total
electric, with a fireplace for backup.  But it's a lot milder in the
winter here, I reckon.
