Making it easy to order your heating oil

Kettlewell Fuels Top Tips

We hope these TOP TIPS will help you when it comes to making your next heating oil order.

We’re committed to ensuring your supply of heating oil is continuous and that your customer service experience is positive.

Kettlewell Fuels Oil Level

Check your tank’s oil level

Before contacting us, we suggest you check the level of oil in your tank.

Your tank may have a float gauge or sight level tube that allows you to keep an eye on your oil level. Alternatively, you may have a digital monitor that plugs into an electric socket inside the house, such as an Apollo or Watchman.

When it indicates that the tank is still about one quarter full or when the digital monitor reaches 1 or 2 (1 or 2 bars) now is a wise time to order.

If your tank has no gauging system, or you want to double-check the accuracy of your gauge, an alternative basic method to monitor how much heating oil you have left is to dip the tank.

To find out how to do this read our ‘How to Measure Your Oil’ TOP TIPS.

Kettlwell Fuels Time

Order in plenty of time 

To ensure a consistent fuel supply, it’s good to order in plenty of time.

The winter months are the busiest time for fuel oil companies - particularly when cold weather is forecast - so ordering in advance will avoid fuel anxiety and ensure you have sufficient to see you through the cold spells.

The peak times are holidays especially around Christmas time, just after New Year or when we’ve had an extended cold periods and usage is high.

Kettlewell Fuels Swift Delivery

Receive a swift delivery

To ensure a seamless delivery, we will need to know where your tank is and be made aware of any hazards.

Here, at Kettlewell Fuels, we undertake a delivery assessment each time we visit you as part of the service we offer. If the tank is accessible there really shouldn’t be any need for you to be at home when the delivery takes place.

Kettlewell Fuels Fill up your tank

Fill up your tank

It’s always better to fill up your tank.

Whenever ordering, consider filling up rather than making a minimum order. This is more environmentally friendly with fewer delivery miles involved.

As a general guide, most domestic tanks hold between 1,000 and 2,500 litres and, in the main, an average order is between 500-1,500 litres.
