HOME HEATING OIL
#2 Heating Oil is our most popular product for heating oil and is the standard fuel for most oil heating systems. #2 Heating Oil is not subject to such a stringent refinement process as Kerosene, therefore it is suitable for storage tanks that are located indoors or sheltered from the elements, because if stored outside it will gel in colder temperatures. #2 Heating Oil produces more BTU’s than Kerosene and is a cheaper option per gallon.
Kerosene is the cleanest heating fuel that we provide. The quality of the fuel is derived from the refinement process in which impurities are removed. Due to this refinement process, Kerosene is superb for tanks that are free-standing outside or in a area where the tank is exposed to the elements because it resists gelling (a state when the fuel becomes so cold that it turns thick and therefore hard to pass through plumbing). Kerosene fuel produces fewer BTU’s than #2 Heating Oil.
