How To Add Fuel To Your Tank on Your Own

PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS APPLY ONLY TO SYSTEMS THAT BURN HOME HEATING OIL

If you have not run out of fuel yet but are about to follow these instructions:

Step 1:

Find your nearest local gas station that sells DIESEL FUEL (Diesel pumps typically have a GREEN handle)

Step 2:

Purchase 10-20 gallons and pour the diesel fuel into your tank via the fill pipe located outside your house (unless it is an outdoor tank then the fill is typically right on the tank)

WARNING! NEVER USE AUTOMOBILE GAS!

Doing so could result in injury and/or death as well as cause damage to equipment or personal property.

If you have already run out of fuel, you will need to follow the instructions listed above and then in addition to that, bleed the air out of your oil lines and restart your furnace/boiler.

To restart your system you can search on Google/Youtube for DIY videos on how to bleed air out of the oil lines and restart your furnace/boiler.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS SUGGESTION IS INTENDED TO OFFER WHAT HELP WE CAN TO HELP ALLEVIATE YOUR CRISIS, HOWEVER YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU CHOOSE DO IT YOURSELF. GREEN ACRES FUEL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR FOR ANY REASON.
