20 CFR 112 (http://www.epa.gov/oilspill/pdfs/0703_40cfr112.pdf) defines oil as "Oil means oils of any kind or in any form, including, but not limited to: fats, oil, or greases of animals, fish or marine origin; vegetable oils, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits, or kernels; and, other oils and greases, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, synthetic oils, mineral oils, oil refuse, or oil mixed with wastes otgher than dredged spoil."

An exemption for SPCC exists for underground storage tanks, among other things like container size but does apply to aboveground storage tanks.

The EPA website gives federal guidance and discusses SPCC requirements at http://www.epa.gov/oilspill/spcc.htm

I do not know about Texas specific regulations.
