Frequently Asked Questions

Place a long stick down into the tank and measure the amount of oil marked on the stick, use a tank oil chart estimate the number of gallons in your tank. If you aren’t sure of your tank’s diameter, the most common sizes are:

3. What is the easiest way for delivery?
The easiest way for recieving home heating oil is through automatic delivery. The oil company electronic delivery system computes degree days and tracks how cold the weather has been and calculates and individual usage rate for each customer. This tells the company just when a custer will need a delivery, long before a person would know it themselves.

Automatic delivery doesn’t mean more fuel is burned. It provides peace of mind because you do not have to worry about how much fuel is in your tank.
