Due to a EPA request, I have to physically and permanently limit our fuel oil storage tank from 1 million gallons to 985,000 gallons. Level indicators and administrative controls are not acceptable. I can find no reference in API on reducing a storage tank capacity. How would I best limit this tank's capacity to comply with the EPI and API code? I have been asked to put concrete in the bottom and I know that is not an option, but I cannot find anything in API that backs me on this.
