Written on: December 28, 2020

fuel supply north carolinaWeather can be pretty unpredictable here in the Asheboro, NC area – sudden drops in temperature can lead you to need a more heat than you expected, for longer than you expected. Before you know it, you could be on the wrong end of a no-heat emergency.

To be ready for Mother Nature’s ups and downs, you need to plan ahead – especially if you’re a will call customer managing your own heating oil or propane deliveries.

For starters, you’ll need to keep close tabs on your fuel tank gauge, especially during a cold snap. Most people underestimate how much fuel they’ll use during the course of a winter day – especially if you’re a propane customer who uses gas to power appliances other than your furnace or boiler.

If you want to avoid a fuel run-out and the expenses and inconveniences that come with it, always order your fuel when your tank is no less than one-quarter full, and allow for a three-day gap between when you place your order and when the fuel is delivered to your house.

Don’t wait until the last minute, especially during severe winter weather!

Keep Full Automatic Delivery Is Your Simple Solution

If you’re like most of our customers, you don’t really want to deal with the hassle of watching your fuel gauge all winter long – and you definitely don’t want the hassle of dealing with a fuel run-out or its complications.

That’s why most of our customers choose our FREE Keep Full automatic delivery plan option.

With Keep Full – available for your heating oil or propane – we estimate how much fuel you are likely to use based on your past usage and the current weather (if you have recently become an Briles Oil & Gas customer, we will base your delivery total on similar-sized homes in the area). Your Briles delivery crew will come at a convenient time for you once your tank reaches about one-quarter full.

With Keep Full, you can skip the tank watching and delivery scheduling, and dramatically decrease the likelihood of a run-out. You’ll also get priority service compared to will call in periods of high demand.

The Bottom Line With Fuel Supply

As you can see, Keep Full has some big advantages over will call – a key reason why most of our customers take advantage of this convenient service. Still, if you prefer to watch the fuel level of their storage tank, that’s no problem – with our large fleet of trucks, we can get fuel to you quickly and reliably when others can’t. Just be sure to plan ahead to avoid a no-heat emergency!
