Festive 5 Top Tips


1. Stay warm. Check your stock of oil.

Reduce your stress levels on Christmas Day by checking your tank’s oil level well before the big day!

Don’t let it fall below approximately 12 inches of oil.

3. Stay secure – especially if you’re away.

If you’re planning a trip to visit family and friends make sure your oil tank is as secure as possible.

Although oil theft is rare, there are measures you can take including installing a tank lock, CCTV and security lights.

4. Check your insurance is up-to-date

Make sure that your insurance policy covers your oil tank - most home insurance policies do not include this in the standard cover.

You need to be covered for loss of fuel through theft and oil spills.

5. If your tank does have an oil leak over Christmas

Don’t ignore it!

Simply call the National Pollution Hotline on 0800 807060 immediately, the lines are open 24 hours a day.

You can stop the oil running intro drains by using absorbent materials or soil.

Remember it is important not to wash oil down drains with water and never use detergents.
