Customer Question

I have an indoor oil tank. It is located in the corner of the house. Can the fill pipe be on one side and the vent pipe on the other side of the house? Thanks

As you're probably aware they are typically side by side. You could put one around the corner from the other as long as the vent can be seen from the fill location if that's the only feasible option. The critical point is that the top of the vent must be at least 12" higher than the fill.
