My oil gauge is broken. How do I figure out how much fuel oil to order?

You can get a accurate reading of your heating oil level by measuring the depth of the oil in your tank.  This requires a a long, clean measuring stick or dowel. Lower the stick into your tank until ittouches the bottom. Remove the stick from the tank and note how many inches up the stick the oil reached. Then use the chart below to convert inches into gallons.  NOTE: The chart below is only an estimate of the amount of gallons in your oil tank.

Once you know how much fuel you have, check out the price and place an order.
