Also known as No. 2 heating oil, heating oil is a distillate that is very closely related to diesel fuel. In the U.S., heating oil puts out more heat per BTU basis than natural gas or electricity. This means that it’s a very effective 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.


At Foster Fuels, we believe home comfort should be seamless. Whether your home’s oil tank is full isn’t something you should have to worry about. Have you ever run out of heating oil and called your supplier, only to learn there will be a three-day wait for a refill? With Foster Fuels, that’s never an issue. With our auto-fill service, our drivers will check your tank regularly and ensure you have enough oil at all times, billing only for what you need. This is an ideal choice for busy families who need the reliability of constant fuel without constantly monitoring their tank and calling to place each order.


In today’s economy, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of your expenses. While rising utility costs have hit many families hard, home heating shouldn’t be something you have to go without. Foster Fuels offers various pricing programs to work with your budget and ensure you get the heat you need. In addition to being a Virginia Fuel Assistance Program facility, we also offer reduced summer pricing, volume discounts, and other incentives.


In addition to efficient home oil delivery, Foster Fuels offers all the services you need to maintain your fuel tank properly. We can perform periodic tank cleaning to ensure no impurities are affecting the performance of your furnace as well as other regular maintenance tasks. We can provide new home installations, gas line repairs, troubleshooting, and more.
