I still don't understand why you wouldn't take the time and effort to convert the nozzle so it sprays back out at the guy who is filling it up. Haha, now you're covered in oil, oil guy.

This happens from time to time. Around me there was a house that pulled a basement tank but left the filler tube (why you wouldn't cut the tube and fill it is beyond me). Delivery was off by a house. Guy pumped the truck into the basement (apparently he must have been wanking in the truck not to notice several hundred gallons going in.). Didn't total the house though. Who wouldn't want a nice indoor saudi swimming pool.

give me doughnuts: FTA: The cost of the cleanup and rebuilding of the home is being covered by the oil company's insurance.

Translation: We'll replace your house, so please don't sue us and get awarded twenty times its value.

Oh crap. I replaced my oil furnace with a natural gas furnace 20 years ago. The tank was removed, but the filler tube is still there! I'm in PANIC mode. I better stop at the hardware store on the way home. I hope I'm not too late.

I bet you that the homeowner was on an oil keep full program and the oil company was just coming out to make the first winter delivery. I was chatting with an oil delivery driver and the company had pumped 300 gallons of #2 into some guy's basement after he switched to gas heat, removed the oil tank but didn't notify the oil company or disable the oil fill spout.

The homeowner sued for the damages but when they went to court and the signed keep fill contract was presented the home owner ended up paying for 300 gallons of oil.

Not that I think it's the home owners fault but...If you took the oil tank out of service, don't you think it would be a good idea to cap it or otherwise block off the fill tube?
