Heating oil tank insurance and PLIA
If something goes wrong and your heating oil tank springs a leak, you'll be glad you had a tank replacement contract. This insurance currently costs around $99.95 per year, will pay parts and labor for removal and disposal of your old tank and installation of a new tank and piping.
Please note that the Acme tank contract does not pay for pollution cleanup. Pollution cleanup would be covered by PLIA, the state of Washington’s Pollution Liability Insurance Agency.
If you have an Acme tank replacement contract and are registered with PLIA and your tank leaks, there is no charge whatsoever to you for tank removal, pollution cleanup and new tank installation. To purchase a tank replacement contract, you must be on automatic fuel delivery service from Acme Fuel.
Whether or not you have a tank contract or whether or not you even buy your fuel from Acme, you should definitely be registered with PLIA. It could save you literally thousands of dollars.
PLIA stands for the state of Washington’s Pollution Liability Insurance Agency. PLIA insures against pollution from leaking heating fuel tanks in the state of Washington. It will pay up to $60,000.00 in pollution cleanup costs for individual heating fuel tank leaks. PLIA is funded by a fee assessed on all the petroleum products, including heating oil, sold in the state.
However, even though you are paying for PLIA, your fuel tank will not be covered unless you are registered with PLIA before the leak occurs. The registration form is a simple one-page document. If you have a heating oil tank, you should register it with PLIA right away.
To register, contact us and we’ll send you a PLIA form, or call PLIA directly at 800-822-3905 or go to the PLIA website at www.plia.wa.gov.
