To hedge our bets with this, we're getting 1000L now (half a tankful) since we're down to our last 500L or so. BoilerJuice is currently quoting a lowest price of 58.9p/L, and SCF (Southern Counties Fuel) is over 62p/L. We await a home heating oil quote by email from Shell (Emo Oil).
Update, 15 June
Having heard nothing from Shell/EMO (not surprisingly, given the strikes), I've proceeded with a BoilerJuice order. There were other 'Buying Weekend' orders from others in NR28, which took a little bit off:
|Price at time of order:||Final price:|
|Price:||60.59 p/litre||Price:||59.84 p/litre|
|VAT rate:||5%||VAT rate:||5%|
|VAT amount:||£30.30||VAT amount:||£29.92|
|Credit card surcharge:||£0.00||Credit card surcharge:||£0.00|
|Order total:||£636.20||Order total:||£628.32|
Usually I fill up one a year with about 1700 litres but I'm thinking of only ordering say 750 litres at a time as I'm not sure when any discount would kick in, plus with thefts etc. it seems more sensible. Any comments appreciated.
