Of the 1,001 things on your mind any given day, we’re guessing that checking the gauge on your heating oil tank doesn’t crack the top 100 (don’t worry, we don’t take that personally).
The problem with making fuel gauge watching a low priority is that it can come back to bite you: besides having no heat in the middle of a Massachusetts winter, running out of fuel can lead to other problems for your heating system. If you are a propane customer, for example, you will have to pay for a pressure test of your system (you need one any time your propane service is interrupted) plus emergency delivery charges. If you use heating oil, you’ll have those same emergency filling charges – plus, you may run into problems down the road as the system-clogging sludge from the bottom of your tank gets drawn into your fuel lines.
The takeaway here? Running out of fuel is something you definitely want to avoid. The good news is that you can make run-outs much less likely when you sign up for automatic delivery from Pioneer Oil and Propane.
