Heating oil is used to fuel furnaces within buildings. Typically, delivery is by tanker truck to individual homes and commercial spaces, and the oil is stored in oil tanks in the basement or outside, next to the building. Leaks in older facilities are an environmental concern because even a small leak can cause significant groundwater pollution, rendering the water from wells and springs unusable because chemicals from the oil are harmful to both humans and animals. Heating oil is usually dyed to distinguish it from taxed vehicle fuel (as using untaxed fuels with dye, or mixtures of such, is illegal and, since such fuels are not intended for internal combustion engines, can damage the environment).
