At a store or tank manufacturer/dealer - for above-ground/basement tank (without any installation or piping to the furnace or fill pipe from outside) right in the $500 range including plastic spill/leak containment basin. For direct burial rated double-wall tank, right around $700 at least in our area - not including installation cost or removal or existing tank or hookup.


From an installer (as part of furnish and install contract) typically $550-750 surface/basement, $800-1000 range underground after his markup is added.


When comparing deals make sure what is included - some include overfill alarm, low-level alarm, leak alarms, etc - some do not. Ditto to extension tubes and vents for outside tanks, or outside vent tubes for basement tanks. Also - some do not include required cradles or legs, or tiedowns in high seismic areas or flood areas, so be sure (both on tank and on any isntallation contract) that you are looking at everything you need and are comparing apples to apples.


FYI, if interested - here are links to a bunch of similar questions about installation/installed costs and issues:
