Prices continue to fall north of the border.

Online quotes as cheap as 29.9p/L (~27.6c/L). Not sure why it quotes 900L - I assume its close to the 200 Gallon mark?

I presume their 5% vat and no carbon tax is the difference.

1000 delivered in April was 340 , I ordered 3000 Litres for less than a 1000 euro in April

1 x 1400 Litre Tank and 2 x 1000 Litre IBC Tanks full to the brim.


BTW I recall paying 930 Euro for 1000l 9 or 10 years ago.

.... it's probably a wry exaggeration: ) however, be careful about filling oil tanks too much, I'm sure oil can expand and overflow.Any oilman would know this and advise against anyway but just in case🙂
