Automatic delivery FAQs

A: No. Contrary to this common misconception, you won’t use more fuel when you get automatic deliveries. We can only replace what you’ve already used. A heating oil tank is like a teapot. Full is full!
A: Absolutely not! Daily changes in wholesale oil prices make this impossible, not to mention that we’d have to reschedule and juggle all of our delivery routes if we delayed deliveries. Besides that, , people would run out of fuel. That’s what we’re trying to prevent!
A: Our computerized tracking system contains your fuel-use history, as well as daily temperatures, which we measure by degree-days. Based on this information, we know when your fuel tank is around one-quarter full. At that point, we’ll schedule your next delivery.
A: Nothing, but here are three reasons that you may prefer automatic deliveries instead:
  • If your oil tank gauge is faulty, you could get a false reading.
  • If you have an underground oil tank, you have to keep “sticking” it to check your fuel level.
  • If a sudden cold snap hits, you could use more fuel in a shorter time than you may have expected.
