Fuel Round's manager, James McGovern warned consumers: “Take care of your heating oil tank, especially now as we enter winter. There are a number of steps you can take to reduce your chances of being a victim of heating oil theft - fuel theft in general will probably rise this winter with the #energypricecrisis.”

  • Close and lock your garden gates and tank;
  • Create obstacles around your tank, to make it more difficult to lurk around;
  • Plant around your tank to make it less visible and less accessible;
  • Use high-security padlocks, like closed shackle padlocks, as they are difficult to jimmy;
  • Use outdoor lighting in the early (dark) evening; and,
  • Monitor your oil level closely

James added: "We do two things - we shop around for the best price of the day, and then we negotiate a discount on that price - for our customers, that is win, win - register at www.fuelround.co.uk - we save an average of 12%, running all the way up to 18% on the Consumer Council NI surveys.”
