How much heating oil do I need?

The average UK gas customer consumes approximately 14,000 kWh per year. This is equivalent to around 1,400 litres of heating oil.

Most domestic tanks have a capacity of 1,000 to 2,500 litres — check the label if you aren’t sure of yours.

Filling your tank to capacity can be cheaper and more convenient, and helps prevent the build-up of harmful condensation in the summer. This will require a bigger financial outlay, but Rix offers an Easy Payment Plan that allows you to spread the cost across the year.

The minimum order for heating oil is 500 litres.
