Q: If there’s a winter storm warning, should I call for a fill-up even if I’m signed up for automatic deliveries?

A: If you get automatic deliveries, you never have to worry about calling for fuel: We use a proven system that factors in the forecast as well as your past usage so we know how much you have and when you will need more.

If you are not signed up for automatic deliveries, it’s important to give us enough time to schedule your delivery — especially if bad weather is expected. Keep an eye on your gauge — we recommend calling for more fuel when your tank reaches the one-quarter mark. This gives us enough notice to get a delivery truck to you.

Better still, give us a call to see if you qualify for automatic deliveries: the service is free, and the peace of mind is priceless.
