    Is there no local AHJ you can ask? Town building inspector?

    All ignition sources must be 18" above a garage floor. Oil tank will require stanchions. I'm in Mt Sinai

    What Robert said, and best to add a vapor barrier, tank no closer that 5 feet from the unit, lally columns where impact might be a possibility, outside air intake, no open returns in garage if warm air to name a few. There are different codes for different areas. Check locally

    Thank you. I am trying to get confirmation from the building dept in the town of brookhaven but it is not as easy as it sounds to reach someone by phone.

    What do you want for the trifling amount of property taxes? :)
