Automatic delivery is a great way to take the worry of managing your supply of heating oil and propane , which can help you prevent costly and potentially even dangerous winter fuel runouts.
But as you probably know, the timing of your automatic deliveries is based on averages – specifically, the average amount of heating oil or propane you have used in the past plus a weather-related average called a degree day, which we will talk about in a future blog.
To put it another way, your automatic delivery schedule is based on an educated guess rather than specific knowledge of how much fuel is in your tank. The problem with any kind of guesswork is that you need complete information to arrive at intelligent conclusions.
That’s where you come in.
