Can heating oil spoil?

If you ended the season with plenty of heating oil in your tank, you might wonder if your fuel will still be good when you turn your heat on again in the fall. No worries. Your heating oil will be fine. The average lifespan of home heating oil ranges between 18 and 24 months. For comparison, regular gasoline only has a shelf life of three to six months.

To ensure that long lifespan, we treat our heating oil with a proprietary additive blend called Ultra Heat. We do not charge you extra for our Ultra Heat Premium Heating Oil, which helps to reduce algae, water, and sediment. This keeps your heating system running efficiently.

IMPORTANT: If you ended winter with a near-empty tank (a quarter full or less), you should get a fill-up to prevent warm weather condensation from building up on your tank walls. This could damage your tank.

Please get in touch with us if you have questions or need a tank fill-up.
