The fuel alternative that makes a difference.
If you’re looking for ways to reduce your usage of nonrenewable energy sources, John Ray & Sons offers an alternative to conventional heating oil.
It’s efficient. Safe. Proven. Less polluting. And will warm you up — with less warming to the environment.
It’s called bioheat fuel, and it has a successful track record. Bioheat fuel offers the same performance as heating oil derived solely from petroleum sources, but burns more cleanly, reducing smoke, sulfur, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions. It’s biodegradable, nontoxic, and renewable. And it’s already the fuel of choice for homes, schools, and other facilities throughout the Northeast.
Bioheat fuel produces the same satisfying heat and costs just about the same as petroleum-based heating oil. Click here to find out about how you can save even more with New York’s tax rebate program.
Any heating appliance will accept the changeover to bioheat fuel without modification. And, since it’s naturally lubricating, bioheat fuel is gentle on your heating system. Contact us for more information.
Our bioheat fuel is a B5 blend of 5% soybean oil, a biodegradable oil made from the soybean crops grown in the United States, and 95% petroleum-based home heating oil. By using it, you reduce our dependency on foreign oil and support U.S. agriculture.
If everyone using heating oil switched to a B5 blend, 400 million gallons of regular heating oil could be saved, conserving oil and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
We pride ourselves on prompt, reliable delivery of bioheat fuel. Because we perceived a growing demand for this environmentally cleaner fuel, we established a reliable source to meet our customers’ needs.
