After spending nine and a half years at our current location on Church Street we are moving in the coming days to our new address at 17 Airport Rd in Belfast.  It is only a mile and a half from our current office and easily accessed from Outer Congress Street.  We will be posting directions to our new office on Facebook and at our Church Street location.  If you have questions please call us and we will help direct you there. 

Although we have enjoyed our time on Church Street, we are excited about this new adventure and the opportunities it presents.  We look forward to seeing you at our new office and for your continued business!

It is hard to believe, but 10 years ago TODAY we made our first oil delivery!!!  What started out as a cash fuel business in Matt’s dining room has grown into a full service oil and propane company today.  A lot has changed from those early days, but our focus on offering the best Customer experience at a competitve price has not.  We are very thankful for each Customer we have met and served over the past ten years!  Without you we would not be celebrating this milestone, nor would we be looking forward to what the next ten years will bring.   Thank you for your continued support!

Our lives are busy and often times we over look things that are so critical to the way we live our lives.  One of those areas we see people forget about on a regular basis is their fuel tanks.

Did you know that condensation forms inside of tanks, that coupled with sludge buildup can significantly decrease the life of your fuel tank?  This buildup of sludge and water can lead to problems with fuel quality or worse yet a tank that begins to leak due to corrosion.

Fortunately, there are companies who have figured out how to protect your tank, improve fuel quality and increase the life of your fuel tank.  Carter Chemicals of Westbrook Maine has developed and carries multiple fuel additives for any situation.  We wanted to support a Maine based manufacturing business so we tested the products.  The results have exceeded our expectations and we now offer their full line of products.  I want to highlight the products we utilize the most:

Arotec 275 –  Used to prevent #2 fuel from gelling, disperses water and keeps fuel flowing in subzero temperatures
K-1 Plus – Disperses water/sludge, prevents corrosion and provides stabilization for long-term storage
Arotec 300 – Breaks up sludge, emulsifies moisture and slows the rate of corrosion inside the fuel tank
Aronol – Raises cetane level in diesel fuel, improves fuel economy, lowers pour point to reduce gelling issues and increases fuel lubricity (We use this in all diesel vehicles year round!)

For more information or pricing please call us at 338-4739.
