The base of the tank supports shall be at the same grade level as the vehicles when positioned for fueling.
The bottom of the tank, irrespective of any supports, shall be elevated at least 6 inches above the surrounding grade.
Tanks of 1,100 gallons or more, or located less than 40 feet from buildings.
Aboveground tanks which have a capacity of 1,100 gallons or more, or which are located less than 40 feet from either the buildings and structures listed in sub. (2) (a)
