Frequently Asked Questions
How much tank do you really need?
Our 250, 325 and 500-gallon tanks are available for lease.
120-gallon tanks are available for purchase, and we encourage purchasing
a tank if anticipated yearly gas usage is less than the tank’s
Large tank leases are discretionary per consultation.
Should I buy or lease my tank?
Advantages to owning a tank are:
(a) easier transition if you sell your property,
(b) freedom of choice - if you lease a tank from another company, you
will not be able to switch to another company unless you own your tank,
(c) an owned tank can be buried and out of the way, leaving room for
more attractive landscaping design.
Advantages to leasing a tank are:
(a) a smaller annual payment as opposed to an initial lump sum, but your gallon price is higher.
(b) the option of switching to a larger tank should your gas usage increase,
(c) Leasing is limited to above ground tank.
What size tank should I get?
120V 120 250 325 500 1000 1450
A 120 gallon tank is used primarily for gas log sets
or in conjunction with a secondary heat source. They can be vertical
or horizontal and are economical to fill.
250- and 325-gallon tanks are best suited for those
who have gas appliances - water heaters, dryers, ranges, cooktops, etc.
They could also be used in a smaller home for heating. However, depending
on heat usage in winter, you may want to consider
a larger tank.
A 500-gallon tank is a good idea for a larger size home. This tank would adequately supply gas appliances as
well as heat sources. Again , home size, heat usage and insulation play
a large part in gas requirements.
A 1,000- or 1,450-gallon tank would be recommended
for large homes, commercial or institutional-style applications who
rely solely on gas heat and/or run a large amount of gas appliances.
We encourage the purchase of these tanks, as they incur a higher level
of difficulty in set-up and/or removal.
Please call our office for a consultation.
How do I become a Wilson Gas customer?
If you own your tank or are adding new gas service to your home or business,
all you need to do is give us a call. For new service involving tank
sets and gas line installs, we like to come out and have a look around
If you lease your tank from another company, first check with them to
see when your contract for their services expires. When you’ve
resolved matters with them, give us a call and we’ll go from there.
We don’t fill gas tanks from other companies, and they don’t
fill ours. It’s just not ethical.
Can I have my tank filled on a routine basis?
Sure. Just call and tell us you’d like to be on our “Fill
Daily” list. This is a wise thing to do- it keeps your tank filled,
is convenient and is also a good way to keep your gas bills down.
