Ask Mister C
How do I know how much oil was delivered?
All our oil deliveries are made through the meter on the lorry. All meters are set, sealed, and checked by Trading Standards. The delivery ticket will have recorded on it the appropriate meter readings.
Should I use broker websites or buying groups?
With the rise of the Internet we have seen a significant increase in the number of groups, syndicates, brokers, and websites claiming to get you cheaper fuel supplies, or bulk savings through aggregated orders.
We would be very careful about using buying groups or broker websites as they are, for the most part middle men, seeking to make themselves money by placing themselves between you and the real distributor whose tanker will end up delivering.
A real fuel distributor will have fuel tankers, a depot, oil to sell, and people to talk to about any issues you may have. They will also value your business direct with them higher than a broker chasing commission.
When the snow falls, or supplies are tight, we focus on serving our customers not other peoples'. If you deal with CPS Fuels direct we save you money, rather than putting pounds of commission into the pockets of middlemen.
Can you deliver less than 500 litres?
The smallest bulk delivery of any oil CPS Fuels can make is 500 litres. This is the minimum volume set by UK Trading Standards Regulations for Bulk Meters used by delivery tankers. If you require less than 500 litres then we can supply Gas Oil (Red Diesel) and Heating oil (Kerosene) in 205 litre barrels. Contact our Commercial sales team to find out more.

RTFO and FAME advice sheet
When FAME was introduced into Road Diesel the automotive sector and oil industry learnt very quickly how it impacted on the supply chain that distributed it and the vehicles that it fuelled. Much of this considerable experience will now have relevance to Gas Oil users who need to understand how the inclusion of FAME (a hydroscopic powerful solvent with good detergency properties) will affect their tanks and engines.
FAME in Gas Oil: What this means to Gas Oil users
Twelve years ago, in 2006, the British Standard for non-road diesel (BS2869) was revised to allow the addition of FAME to both Gas Oil (Red Diesel) and Road Diesel (White Diesel). This was done to enable renewable fuels to be introduced into the UK under the Renewable Fuel Transport Obligation (RTFO). However this was rarely realised in UK Gas Oil supply chain, and to date most Gas Oil supplied by has been FAME free.
Oftec say New ECO3 Proposals Discriminate Against Heating Oil Using Rural Households
OFTEC has expressed major concerns that government proposals to exclude heating oil boilers from the next round of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme would unfairly discriminate against rural households and lead to even higher levels of fuel poverty.
