Internal corrosion is the main cause of aboveground home heating oil tank failure. Water is the primary culprit. Moisture condenses inside all tanks and settles to the bottom. It combines with sediment, bacteria and sulfur from the oil to form a crude acid.
The acid on the tank bottom causes electrolysis, whereby electrons are removed from the steel tank shell. This electrolysis causes focused pitting at random sites on the tank interior, within the area that is covered by the sludge and water. The corrosion pits are often quite small in diameter, which is why tank leaks commonly occur as weeping wet spots or slow drips.
