How Do I Check My Fuel Tank Levels?

Written on: February 15, 2021

If you do choose to manage your own heating oil or propane deliveries, one of your most important jobs is to keep an eye on your fuel levels. If you’re new to your heating system and haven’t had to check your fuel gauge yet, don’t worry – It’s easy to do. Here are the basics.

Please keep in mind: many factors will affect the speed at which you will use up your heating oil – the efficiency of your heating equipment and the air tightness of your home, to name two. The one factor that will have the greatest impact on your fuel usage, however – at least in terms of the speed of your fuel use –  is the weather. In fact you could use 50 percent more fuel on a day that reaches single digits than you do if the temperature hovers around the freezing mark.

The takeaway here: Keep a close eye on your fuel use, especially as temperatures drop. You are probably using propane or heating oil faster than you think!
