Heating Oil

Yes! One of the things that allows us to be competitive is our storage capacity. We buy in larger quantities than some fuel dealers, which means a lower cost for us and a lower price for you. That said, it’s also important to remember that as a full-service fuel company our prices may not always be the lowest in our market, but we offer you advantages that fuel discounters don’t. For example, we have a dedicated team of highly trained technicians, who are always on call for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

If your heating oil tank does not have a gauge on it, you will need to follow the steps below to check for the oil level in your tank.

Step 1: Remove the top fill valve cap.

Step 2: Insert a dry straight stick (one long enough to get to the bottom of the tank) until it reaches the bottom. Mark the stick with a pencil where it meets the top of the fill hole.

Step 3: Once you pull the measuring tool out you can compare the oil level to the top and bottom of your tank. For example, a 275 tank is full at 42 inches.

Step 4: Don’t forget to put the top fill cap back on!
