In a Nutshell

In a nutshell ...

Community Oil Buying Syndicate

  • The oil buying syndicate exists to source the best priced heating oil for its members. It was founded in January 2006.


  • To join, please email me at and request a Registration Form, together with full details.


  • For membership, there is a small annual charge of £10. This subscription is to cover expenses and it will be invoiced.


  • Every week, on a Monday, I obtain best prices from a number of local oil suppliers.


  • The best heating oil deal is chosen and this is published by email to all members.


  • The price is fixed for the week and members can order directly from the chosen supplier, as and when required. There is no obligation to order oil through the syndicate at all.


  • The minimum order is for 500 litres, and all members pay the same price per litre regardless of the order size. A very useful feature!


  • Payment for oil is required with order, and the best method to do that is by using a debit card.


  • Oil users without email access can still join, and they just phone me when they require oil, to obtain the latest price.


  • I welcome enquiries from businesses, schools, churches, village halls and of course, domestic residences. There is no subscription charge for churches and village halls.


  • The area covered by the syndicate is most of West Sussex, the southern villages of Surrey, and the western villages of East Sussex.


  • Full information on how the scheme works, is covered in my Notes, a copy of which will be sent to you upon registering as a member. The Notes can also be downloaded from this site.


  • Please tell your neighbours and friends about the oil syndicate ... the more the merrier!
