Answer to the Most-Asked Questions About Ordering Fuel

When should I place an order?

It’s important to order fuel before your tank reaches 1/4 full, and this is especially crucial during the winter months when storms can lead to delivery delays. Sub-zero temperatures and inclement weather can exacerbate the challenges of replenishing fuel supplies promptly. By proactively scheduling deliveries ahead of time, you safeguard against unexpected runouts and ensure  consistent and reliable heat.

How do I read my tank gauge?

Understanding how to read your heating oil tank gauge is as straightforward as checking your fuel gauge in a car. Locate the gauge, typically found on the top or side of the tank, and observe the floating indicator or needle pointing to the current oil level.

Why should I check my gauge more around the holidays?

While you may have a general sense of your oil usage, it’s essential to recognize that consumption can fluctuate significantly during the holidays. With more people in the home, frequent parties, increased door openings, and additional hot water usage by guests, your heating oil demands can surge unexpectedly. Coupled with potentially colder-than-average temperatures, these factors underscore the importance of checking your oil gauge more frequently during the holidays.
