What to Do If You Run out of Oil

  • The first thing you need to do is make sure that you’re actually out of heating oil and not having issues with the oil storage tank. If you’re unsure, call a professional in your service area for a maintenance check.
  • If it turns out you do need to refill your tank, contact your fuel provider and set up an oil delivery. How much and how soon you’ll need it will depend on how critical the situation is.
  • If you run out of oil, grime can build up in your tank, and you’ll need a professional to bleed the tank for you. Using a professional is the smart route to take because bleeding the system incorrectly could lead to additional complications and unexpected costs to resolve them.

How to Prevent Running out of Oil

  • Be proactive and budget for your oil costs, so you can afford an oil delivery whenever you need it: and remember that you will burn more oil in the winter than you will in the summer.
  • Track the level of oil in your tank with a tank gauge or monitor and be sure to order oil when you have about ¼ of a full tank left.
  • Consider setting a reminder for yourself for your regular oil ordering intervals. This will help the process stay top of mind in case you don’t happen to think of checking your oil tank gauge.
