If you run out of heating oil it can feel scary in the moment, but with help from Husky Heating Oil and a local gas station, you can keep your family warm and comfortable until a delivery can arrive.

What Should I Do if I Run Out of Heating Oil?

First, you should call Husky Heating Oil at (410) 220-5386 to schedule a delivery. If you run out of heating oil during a snowstorm or on a holiday weekend, it may affect the timeliness of your delivery. Thankfully, you can use an alternative fuel source in emergency situations until a heating oil delivery can be completed. The most often used substitute for heating oil is diesel.

Select a gas container that can hold flammable liquids and purchase diesel or kerosene. Purchase at least 5 gallons of fuel. If it is a weekend or during a snowstorm, buy multiple gas containers of diesel if you can. Once you arrive home, fill up your heating oil tank with the diesel and allow 10 minutes to pass. This gives time for impurities and sediment in the diesel to settle and the clean fuel to sit on top.

Next, restart your furnace. Depending on how long your furnace has been without fuel, you might need to bleed the fuel line before restarting. Once the furnace starts again, your home will be heated the same as it would be with heating oil and you will be comfortable until your delivery arrives. For directions on restarting your furnace watch this video.
