We have a 1000 gallon tank feeding 3 houses, that ran out one weekend last year, i had to go a garage that sold kero by the pump with 10, 25litre drums, i got some funny looks i can tell you, got home put them all in the grain bucket, pored in tank one by one, my arm nearly fell off. apparently that was my fault too even though the tank is situated at a house i don,t live at, but where a fat bloke lived. At the time he could,t get off his fat ass to check the level even though i had asked him to keep an eye on it.I haven't run out but it's below the bottom of the sight glass, so I figured the extra £13.75 of the 2nd quote was easily worth 2 days extra peace if it conked out over the weekend.
I keep telling my dear wife that Emeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes chained themselves to railings just so that she (Mrs PSQ) could check the oil level herself, but no, apparently thats 'a mans job'. She's so sexist.
