    So apparently oil users will be getting £100 towards our oil cost from October but how will 1. They know who we are 2. Get it to us?

    We need it back dating , oil is now half the price it was a few months back but still roughly double what it used to be 🙁

    I wondered that too! It’s only £100, but I want it!

    It’s going to be interesting to see how they do it – I have 4 different suppliers that I order from depending upon price.

    I did think that £100 wasn’t much but, seeing as we also get the £400 gas/electricity payment, it’s £100 more than people who use gas are getting!

    Yep I can’t see how any system would work.

    I can see a bit like ev car charging points that the supplier would have to reclaim from the government, but that would be massive to administer + open to fraud and potential losses for the oil companies

    I had an email from Boilerjuice saying, regarding getting the £100 payment:

    ‘Inevitably this will take some time, so we strongly recommend that customers do not wait if they need heating oil. We are working closely with the government to find a solution and ensure that heating oil households receive their £100 as soon as possible.’

    Not sure how much this is useful info or just them trying to get some orders.

    We bought when it was 93p /l thinking it’s just start going up over winter, very silly as Truss came into power and within days it was down at around 77p I think! Then again we have 1000l and a new born literally days away so priorities are different 🤣

    This £100.

    Is it
    – per household with oil
    – per household oil order
    – for each oil order
    – something else

    I did think that £100 wasn’t much but, seeing as we also get the £400 gas/electricity payment, it’s £100 more than people who use gas are getting!

    Yes, but we pay more (per unit) for our electricity because we don’t get the dual-fuel discount.

    89p a litre this week for 1000 litres in Kinross-shire. We’re now sitting with about 2/3 of a tank which should do us through most of spring.

    When people are working out how out of pocket they are, don’t you offset it against 2020/2021 when it’s been as low as 20pish? I’m probably breaking about even at the mo, although another tank at the current price would change that.

    Had anyone got a link to the proposed Govt help scheme?

    Not found any guidance yet. The energy support scheme page hasn’t been updated since April, with no mention of oil/LPG yet.

    Getting the Energy Bills Support Scheme discount – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

    How would that work as we’ve only 2 suppliers who deliver (rural Scotland), so I just ring both when we need, and buy the cheapest.

    1,000 litres, 3 times per year.

    If it’s just the fuel oil we get, me! If it’s something more specific I don’t know. I think we have 3 local suppliers to choose from, rural Scotland, my wife usually just sees who’s cheapest.

    I’ll see what I can come up with can’t promise anything We do a friends scheme already I just want to see if I can improve on it.

    Some of you know who I work for but I’d rather keep that quiet and not publicly on here.

    I’m not looking forward to turning the heating and Aga back on

    Another South Coast dweller?

    If your AGA is off how do you cook and what heats your water – and if you’ve an AGA, what’s the ‘heating’ for?

    South Coast of Scotland…

    Aga was in when we bought the place waters a combi as the Heating variant of the Aga is terrible and they dropped it as its terrible on oil.

    In summer knock it off and BbQ or use an electric wok and an induction hob currently sat on the Aga and have a belling oven on the counter. There’s no electric oven or hob in the kitchen unfortunately.

    AGA Heats the kitchen and leaches heat through the sun room.

    Its a lovely thing when it’s on just ££££ to run. Though it means my electric bill is way less in winter than summer
