How does auto delivery work?

Most automatic fuel delivery programs use an exact delivery schedule based on your heating needs. If it sounds almost too good to be true, don’t worry! Luckily for folks who rely on automatic delivery, this is the reality. Your fuel provider will use state-of-the-art technology to track daily weather patterns and fuel usage to estimate when you will need your next delivery, so it’s always on time. Some fuel providers also offer tank monitors, which are handy little devices that use Wi-Fi to monitor the level of Bioheat® fuel in your tank.

What are the benefits of automatic delivery?

  • Total Convenience: No need to pick up the phone or plan around delivery dates.
  • Greater Peace of Mind: Automatic delivery significantly reduces the risk of a no-fuel emergency, which can cause serious damage to your equipment.
  • Smarter Spending: A custom delivery schedule translates into more efficient fill-ups, which can help you make the most of your heating season budget.

Does auto delivery cost more?

If you’re thinking this convenient delivery of fuel will cost you more than will-call service, think again! The vast majority of fuel delivery providers offer automatic delivery at no additional charge, and only what you need when you need it. You can rest assured that you’ll take advantage of more balanced heating costs on automatic delivery.

Do I ever have to check my tank?

Your fuel provider will handle all your ordering and scheduling for you if you’re on automatic delivery, but it’s still a good idea to periodically check your fuel gauge just in case. A sudden increase in usage (like adding more members to your household or property additions) could throw off your typical usage schedule. If you have any changes in your fuel usage, make sure to tell your NY fuel provider right away.
