Have any questions about our services?

Below are some answers to the most common questions we get asked. If you can't find an answer to a question regarding our services, then please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.

What areas do you deliver to?

We cover most of central Scotland including North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, Mid Lothian, East Lothian, West Lothian, Stirlingshire, Clackmannanshire and some areas of Peebleshire. If you are unsure whether we deliver to your area, please give us a call or drop us an email.

What is the difference between Heating Oil & Kerosene?

There is no difference. They are in fact the same thing.

What is the minimum delivery of fuel I can have?

The minimum delivery of any fuel is 500 litres. Due to the calibration of the meters, companies are not permitted by Trading Standards to deliver less than 500 litres. The average order is 1000 litres.

Do you do emergency same-day deliveries?

Yes, whenever possible. Priority is given to existing customers who have run-out or have an emergency.

I've just moved in. How do I know how much fuel I have?

Many tanks have a site gauge connected; remember to push the plunger so that the level re-sets. This will then adjust the ball to the level of the oil in the tank. If you have a plastic tank, it should have the capacity embossed on it in a prominent place. We can deliver a specified quantity or we can fill your tank... whichever suits your needs/budget.

What type of oil do I need?

Look at the sight gauge on your tank to determine what type of oil you require. Kerosene 28 (kero) is yellow. Gas oil is red.

If you don't have a sight gauge, check with either the previous owner or the service technician (they often leave a contact sticker on the boiler).

Why is the price different each time I order?

Fuel prices are directly linked to the price of crude oil. As with any commodity, when demand is high, the price rises, which affects our prices and the price paid at the pump. Of course, when demand is low then prices will fall.

Is gas oil the same thing as 'red diesel' (35-second oil)?

Yes. Gas oil is red diesel. You are allowed to use it in tractors and any other vehicles used on private land, including a car or truck. There is also a law that says you can use the tractor on a public road within a 7 mile radius of the farm. It is illegal to use it in a car or truck on the road.

Do I need to be in to receive a fuel delivery?

No, if access is easy, or we have been to your property before, we can deliver without you having to wait in for our driver. Any special instructions should be given at the time of ordering.
