WHEN BUYING HEATING FUEL...
Home heating fuel and propane are also sold by volume or weight. When these products are delivered to your home, the seller must give you a "delivery ticket" showing the name and address of the buyer and the seller, the delivery date, the amount and type of fuel delivered. The unit price of the fuel should also be on the delivery ticket unless you have a special arrangement with the seller.
When you are buying from a vendor for the first time, we highly recommend that you should be home for the delivery. Mark down the plate number on the delivery vehicle. In Erie County, we apply our vinyl seals (near the meters) on all fuel trucks we test. If the vehicle delivering your fuel does not have one, please contact us immediately.
