You wake up in the morning and start the shower, only to discover that there’s no hot water. Then you realize that your house feels a little chillier than normal, even though you haven’t touched the thermostat. You check your oil tank, and much to your dismay, you discover that you’re out of oil!
Running out of heating oil is every homeowner’s worst nightmare; but, believe it or not, it’s common. Even if you check your oil tank regularly and you are usually on top of your deliveries, life can get hectic. Forgetting to schedule a delivery happens!
If you’ve discovered that you’re out of heating oil, don’t panic! First, shut off your heating system. Next, read on to find out how to handle the problem so you can restore your home’s comfort.
Contact a Heating Oil Provider
Once you’ve confirmed that you are out of oil, put a call into a heating oil delivery company as soon as possible. Do a quick search on the Internet and you’ll find several companies that offer will-call delivery. However, when searching for companies, try to resist the temptation to place an order with the first one you find. Do a little research first. You want to find a company that won’t charge for emergency deliveries. You also want to choose one that can quickly make a delivery. Also, see if you can find out how long the company has been in business. Generally, those that have been operating for a long time are the most trustworthy.
Get Diesel Fuel
If your tank is completely empty and you need heat and hot water now, diesel fuel will tide you over until the oil delivery company arrives. Diesel fuel and heating oil are very similar, and you can easily add it to your tank without any problems (however, you shouldn’t make a habit of using diesel fuel to heat your home.)
If you have a portable gas can available, grab it and head to your local gas station; if you don’t have a can, you can pick one up at your nearest automotive or hardware supply store. Many gas stations also sell portable gas cans.
Adding diesel fuel to your oil tank is easy; simply find the inlet valve for the tank (where your heating oil is delivered) and pour the diesel in. Give it a few minutes to settle in the tank and then fire it back up. You should have enough fuel to keep you take a hot shower and keep your home warm until your oil delivery arrives; just make sure you keep your thermostat settings low so that you don’t burn through it too fast.
Plan for the Future
Running out of heating oil can be a major inconvenience. To ensure you don’t have to go through the hassle again, plan ahead. Keep track of the oil in your tank. Check it every few days so that you know how much oil you have and can get an idea of how much you are using. Schedule a delivery before you get too low; you don’t want to go below a quarter of a tank.
Lastly, make sure that you monitor your heating system and have it serviced regularly. If any issues arise, you could start burning through oil more quickly, which may increase the chances of running out of oil. By paying attention to how your heating system is operating and having routine maintenance will prevent you from getting stuck in the same predicament.

Brentwood is a hamlet in the Town of Islip in Suffolk County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 Census, the population of Brentwood was 60,664.
In 1844, the area was established as Thompson Station and Suffolk Station, two new stations on the expansion of the mainline of the Long Island Rail Road.
On March 21, 1851, it became the utopian community named Modern Times. The colony was established on 750 acres (3.0 km2) of land by Josiah Warren and Stephen Pearl Andrews. In 1864, it was renamed Brentwood after the town of Brentwood, Essex, in England.
By contract, all the land in the colony was bought and sold at cost, with 3 acres (12,000 m2) being the maximum allowable lot size. The community was said to be based on the idea of individual sovereignty and individual responsibility. Individuals were encouraged to pursue their self-interest as they saw fit. All products of labor were considered private property. The community had a local private currency based upon labor exchange in order to trade goods and services (see Mutualism (economic theory)). All land was private property, with the exception of alleys which were initially considered common property but later converted to private property. Initially, no system of authority existed in the colony; there were no courts, jails or police. This appears to have given some credence to Warren’s theories that the most significant cause of violence in society was most attributable to policies and law which did not allow complete individuality in person and property. However, the modest population of the colony might be considered a factor in this characteristic. The Civil War, as well as new residents that did not share the colony’s philosophy, are said to have contributed to its eventual dissolution. Almost all of the original buildings that existed in Modern Times have been destroyed, aside from two Octagon houses, the original schoolhouse and a residence.
