Emo Oil: Where and what do they deliver?
Emo Oil, based in Portlaoise, is an Irish oil distribution company which is part of the DCC plc group. Emo Oil provides kerosene and gas oil nationwide for home heating, commercial and agricultural purposes. Apart from delivering throughout the Republic of Ireland, it also trades in the North, and in Britain.
Kerosene heating oil is one of the most competitively priced home heating oils available, and consequently one of the most used in Ireland. If the name Emo sounds familiar, it’s because it is another subsidiary of DCC, not to be confused with Emo Oil, and is a top chain of petrol stations countrywide.

Fun Fact!Emo Oil and the Emo petrol stations are named after the village Emo in County Laois.
What products does Emo Oil sell?
Emo Oil has two main products for the residential market, Home heat plus, and Aga Kerosene plus.
Home Heat Plus: The Home Heat Plus offering is a kerosene oil that is compatible with all kinds of oil-fired boilers and is extremely high performance. It improves the efficiency of your boiler and has lower CO2 emissions than regular kerosene oil.
Aga Kero Plus (also known as Kero Cooker Plus) is a kerosene product specially designed to be used with range cookers and burns more cleanly than standard kerosene. It is also kinder to your range cooker, reducing deposit build-up and lowering sludge formation.
In addition to its kerosene offering, you can also order Gas oil from Emo, as well as request useful services such as a boiler bleed or boiler servicing.
Emo Oil provides commercial heating oil, industrial oil, and oil for transport and marine purposes to Irish companies. One extremely useful aspect of their commercial offering is onsite refueling, where fuel is brought directly to your fleet out-of-hours at the location of your choice.
You can also avail of the Emo fuel card where Emo Oil and Emo have partnered to bring your company additional benefits and discounts, and manage your fleet company costs more effectively.
Through Emo’s subsidiary, UBS, you can arrange for an oil tank to be installed or replaced on your property. Just give UBS a call on 028 9045 7501 to arrange a quote.

Emo Oil repeatedly states on its website that great customer service is incredibly important to them, and that they make sure that their customer support team and drivers deliver on this promise and are as helpful as possible.
Given the positive amount of interaction and shares on their social media channels, they do appear to be a well-regarded company. Although only a handful of starred reviews are available, Emo Oil did come out with a five-star rating.
However, across the border in Northern Ireland there was one negative review claiming:
poor service for long standing account holder. Very poor at price matching and generally more expensive.
While one review can’t possibly be representative of the company as a whole, we would still caution customers to carry out a price comparison check on home heating oil prices before switching to any company. Best practice is to always ask for at least three quotes from different companies.
