Heating oil is one of the safest and most reliable sources of residential and commercial heat. Oil is a highly stable, combustible, non explosive product. #2 oil contains 139,000 btu’s per gallon, making it a powerful source of heat during the cold months. Colby & Gale has been delivering heating oil to Lincoln County since 1946, and over the years we’ve seen major improvements in the product we deliver and the systems we fuel.
