#2 Heating/Fuel Oil
Heating oil is a distillate that is very closely related to diesel fuel. Heating oil puts out more heat per BTU than natural gas, propane, or electricity. This means that it’s a very efficient fuel for keeping your home warm in the winter months. With recent advances in technology, using heating oil is now safer for the environment, producing fewer emissions and hydrocarbons.
One common source of confusion when purchasing diesel is the difference between clear and dyed diesel. Clear and dyed fuels are taxed differently.
Dyed diesel is not intended for on-road use and is intentionally dyed to distinguish its use. Its use includes, but not limited to: farm tractors, heavy construction equipment, and generators. Since it is prohibited in on-road vehicles, this fuel does not incur a motor fuels tax. Sales tax may apply.
Clear diesel fuel is intended for any registered vehicle capable of driving on public roadways. Motor fuel taxes will show as separate line items on your invoice.
Premium Winterized Diesel Fuel
Diesel fuel is prone to waxing or gelling in cold weather. Cooper’s offers winterized diesel fuel to keep your equipment running smoothly throughout the frigid winter months.
Most clear and dyed diesel fuels contain a percentage of biodiesel. Cooper’s has the ability to supply a biodiesel blend as requested.
- 10% biodiesel, 90% petrodiesel is labeled B10
- 5% biodiesel, 95% petrodiesel is labeled B5
- 2% biodiesel, 98% petrodiesel is labeled B2
Kerosene is most commonly used for residential heating. Kerosene can be stored for years without degrading in quality or corroding fuel tanks. For these reasons, it’s an excellent choice for rural households that are not regularly serviced by fuel delivery trucks. There is also evidence to suggest that kerosene gives off fewer emissions and hydrocarbons than other heating sources, making it environmentally friendly.
