    to do this I am almost sure you have to be certified, OSHA trained (and documented) and I believe there is a higher teir of insurance you have to carry...the company I use to work for looked into doing this type of work and found out the extra costs didn't outweigh the profits

    Most gas stations now require fiberglass tanks and they have to be buried in Birds eye (pea gravel).

    It costs gas station owners hundreds of thousands of dollars to remove leaking fuel tanks. Diesel tanks are no so bad, gasoline tanks are the big expense because it is harder to treat the contaminated ground.

    also check with your local FD, we issue permits and have an inspector on site the entire time.
