Heating Oil

Martlet Fuels can keep you warm throughout the year whilst providing local, expert knowledge about heating oil and your heating oil needs.


Which heating oil do I need?

Some domestic boilers use gas oil. However the vast majority of oil-fired boilers and cookers are fuelled by kerosene, which is also known as home heating oil, heating oil and burning oil. If you are unsure which type of oil your heating system or range uses, your local depot will be happy to help.

Do I need to know anything before ordering?

It would be helpful if you know the capacity of your heating oil tank. You can work this out by taking the measurements of a metal tank or by locating the model number on a plastic tank. Otherwise, simply call us and one of our helpful depot staff will be happy to work out the details for you.

You should make sure that a qualified engineer has recently serviced your boiler and tank. If any maintenance is required, we can arrange for one of our engineers to visit before ordering your oil.

Does the quantity of heating oil I order influence the price I pay?

Larger quantities of heating oil are cheaper to purchase per litre. Ordering more than 500 litres at a time will help reduce the cost, however we can deliver the quantity you need to fit in your budget.

How can / do I pay you for my heating oil delivery? 

We offer a range of payment methods to suit you:
When you are an established customer you can simply join our Heatplan Scheme and pay by direct debit. Alternatively you can pay over the phone by Switch, Visa or Mastercard.
