What’s the difference between automatic delivery and Will Call? With Will Call delivery, you are responsible for tracking your fuel levels and scheduling your heating oil delivery. You may also have to wait for a refueling in periods of high demand. With automatic delivery, you don’t have to manage your fuel or wait for a delivery; it will be scheduled based on your need.
How do you know when I will need heating oil? Automatic delivery works by using a series of highly accurate, computer modeled estimates of how much fuel you will use (based on your usage in the past) and how much fuel you will need (based on a “degree day” formula, which estimates how much heating fuel a home your size would use given current weather conditions*). When your heating oil tank reaches about one-quarter full, we will schedule a delivery. You won’t need to call or even look at your fuel gauge.
Why is there no additional charge for this service? There is no fee charged for automatic delivery because it benefits us, too. If we know when you need heating oil, we can schedule our delivery routes more efficiently – which means we can serve more customers and avoid having to divert crews to deal with emergency run-outs. Call it a win-win for you, us, and the rest of our customers.

*One “degree day” is allotted for each degree below 65 that the average temperature reaches in your location on a given day. For example, if the average temperature is 35 degrees, 30 degree days are added to fuel your estimate).
