Oil tank height above Aga range cooker

When installing an oil Aga range cooker your oil tanks base needs to be at least 18 inches higher than the base of your cooker but no more than 3 meters. Your Aga range cooker has no oil pump, it relies on a gravity feed and if too low your cooker will be starved of oil when the level is low.
