Fuels & Safety

Fuel Types

Safe, efficient and clean-burning, oil is the number one choice for heating your home or office. Burning up to 20% more efficiently than gas, and being 30% more efficient than electricity, it’s also the most affordable option!  

Today’s oil heat is even better than ever. With a maximum sulfur content of only 15 ppm, burning ultra-low sulfur heating oil eliminates 99% of sulfur oxide emissions. Cleaner and more refined than traditional heating oil, ultra-low sulfur improves heating system performance also, which translates to greater cost savings as well.

You can learn more about the many benefits of oil heat by visiting Oil Heat America.

Slightly more refined than regular heating oil, Kerosene has a lower gel point which makes it the ideal choice for outdoor storage tanks. It’s multipurpose capabilities allow it to be used for lighting and cooking as well.

You can find out more about kerosene by visiting Oil Heat America.

Our 50/50 Winter blend is a 50/50 mix of kerosene and ultra-low sulfur heating oil. Traditionally used by customers with outdoor tanks in the winter months that want the added protection that kerosene’s lower gel point provides.

Fuel & Equipment Safety

We Believe In Safety First

Safety is a top priority for all of us at Advantage Oil. Take a moment to review the safety tips and information provided on the slides, and contact us anytime at (570) 296-8585 if you have any questions or concerns about anything. If you smell smoke, fire or a leak, contact your local emergency department first (911), then contact us if you can do so safely.

Fill & Vent Pipes
Vent pipes need to be checked periodically to make sure they are not clogged with leaves, debris, insect nests, or snow and ice. Clogged vent pipes mean the potential for a fuel spill as a result of overfilling. In more serious situations, clogged vent pipes can cause a fuel tank to burst due to excessive built up air pressure. Both fill pipes and vent pipes should also be checked for leaks.
Oil Tanks
A leaking oil storage tank causes not only contamination and health issues, but it can be very costly to clean up as well. Oil storage tanks should be checked periodically to make sure they are free from leaks, or corrosion (rust) and that the overall integrity of the tank has not been compromised in an way. Concerned about your tanks condition? All above ground outdoor tanks are inspected regularly by our delivery drivers, and if we see a potential problem, we'll let you know. We also require a tank inspection to be performed on all new customer accounts, prior to making the first delivery. If your in-ground or above ground oil tank needs to be replaced for any reason, we can do that. Just contact us for an free inspection and quote.
Fuel Lines
Fuel lines need to be inspected periodically for signs of leaks or deterioration. Outdoor fuel lines, if unprotected or uninsulated, are prone to being damaged by the elements or causing heating system issues when the fuel in the lines gels or freezes up. If gelling is a concern, we do have an anti-gel additive that can be put in your tank when we deliver your fuel oil. If there is a concern that your fuel lines may be damaged or compromised, contact us to see about replacing them or upgrading.
Fumes or Smoke
Smelling petroleum fumes or seeing smoke is something that should not be ignored as it could indicate a serious problem. Fumes are often accompanied by odorless and colorless gas carbon monoxide and can put your health and safety at risk. If you are smelling fumes, please contact us immediately at (570) 296-8585 so that a service technician can diagnose the source of the problem right away. Where there's smoke....there may be fire as well. Contact your local fire department if you feel there is a risk of fire.
