For more than 70 years, Mazzola Oil has been serving Hudson Valley homes and businesses with dependable, courteous heating oil delivery and service.
We remain as committed as ever to upholding our high standards for service and reliability. It’s one reason why so many of our customers stay with us even when big national oil companies come calling. That outstanding service makes us superior in several ways.
Because Mazzola Oil is based right here in the Hudson Valley, we understand the needs of our customers in ways the big, national fuel corporations just can’t. Because we see you as neighbors and not an account number, that understanding plays a role in everything we do for our customers.
We can’t be beaten when it comes to heating oil delivery. Almost 100% of the time, we can make next-day deliveries. You can choose between Will-Call and the reliability of our Automatic Delivery, where we use your heating oil usage history and current weather conditions to accurately predict when you’ll need more heating oil and make the delivery before you run low.
Our customers have individual needs when it comes to how they manage their heating oil costs. That’s why we offer pricing and payment options to choose from so you can control your costs your way.
We are also playing a role in fighting climate change by offering our customers the option of having cleaner-burning Bioheat® fuel delivered. It’s a blend of ultra-low-sulfur heating oil and biodiesels made from renewable resources such as algae, plant oils, and recycled restaurant cooking oils. It not only has dramatically lower emissions, but it also creates less wear on your heating system to improve its efficiency while helping it last longer.
Being locally based, the management and staff of Mazzola Oil have deep connections to the Hudson Valley communities we serve. Many of our employees are involved in local organizations such as youth sports and recreation, community service, and more. As a business, we are involved in many community and business organizations, including:

In our more than 70 years in the heating oil business, we have never seen a period of such anxiety about fuel costs. We understand how costly and worrying the current oil price volatility is for many of our clients.
Situations like this are one of the many reasons why, years ago, we created programs like our Budget Plan. With the Mazzola Oil Budget Plan, we spread your total heating oil costs throughout the year into 12 easy and affordable monthly installments. You won’t get hit with three or four big heating oil bills next winter and you won’t need to worry that a much-needed heating oil delivery is due to arrive at an inconvenient time, such as when a tax bill or tuition payment needs to be made.
Perhaps best of all, you don’t pay anymore to be on this program. Enrollment in our Budget Plan is FREE. No hidden fees, no surprises.
With the Mazzola Oil Budget Plan:
Our calculation of your monthly payment starts by reviewing your past fuel use. Then:
Rather than spending hundreds of dollars after each delivery, you may save more than 50% on your winter payments!
We’ll adjust your payments as necessary throughout the winter if your actual bills are a bit greater or lesser than we predicted.
Hundreds of people have signed up for our Budget Plan since they recognized it to be an efficient approach to make a bad circumstance easier to handle.
Consider it from this perspective: You wouldn’t want to make mortgage payments for five months rather than twelve. Many people, on the other hand, pay for 80% of their heating oil in only four or five months. This naturally leads to significant winter payments.
It’s our objective to provide you with the best price we can while still providing you with dependable service and high-quality heating oil that protects your family from the elements.
Many of you have long been our customers. It’s frustrating to be forced to charge so much for your heating oil. Unfortunately, the costs charged by our suppliers limit our options. You can trust that we are doing all possible to assist you through these trying times.
We appreciate your understanding and promise to do all possible to look after your family, no matter what happens with the price of heating oil. If you are struggling with your Mazzola Oil payments, please get in touch with us before you fall behind so we can work out a solution.
Farming is not an easy job. There’s no clock to punch. More than half of the farmers in the United States say that they work 10 hours or more each day. You can’t take care of things with a Zoom meeting.
With that workload, you need solutions that make your farm more productive and successful. Mazzola Oil’s agricultural fuel services do just that. Because we handle all your farm’s fueling needs, you save time and money not having to have multiple suppliers, making your work more efficient.
Because Mazzola Oil is a locally owned and operated business, we provide personalized, responsive, and flexible commercial fuel service that you can count on. We understand the needs of local farms like yours.
With the latest technology, we’re able to make sure that you always have the on- and off-road diesel fuels.
We take excellent care of our delivery vehicles and equipment. That not only contributes to our reliability for fuel delivery, but also ensures that our safety record remains outstanding.
The Hudson Valley has been a farming region since the first Europeans settled here in the 17th century. Our agricultural production is rich and diverse.
Crops grown in this area include grapes for the many stellar vineyards here, producing wines including Cabernet Franc, Riesling and Seyval Blanc. Farms here also grow a wide range of produce, as evidenced by the bounty a local farm stands and farmer’s markets around the region. Dairy farming and orchards are the major farming businesses.
Here are some examples of how our top-quality diesel fuels are used on farms like yours.

Unsurprisingly, we’ve been getting many calls around two connected issues: the surge in fuel prices and supply concerns. People are astounded by how much prices have risen and how fast. So are we. They are also concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine shocked energy markets, sending crude oil to record territory.
To give you a sense of how this affects your heating oil price, in early March, we received notice at night from our suppliers that their prices were going up 20 cents per gallon the next day. The next day, prices went up three more times—a total of 60 cents in just 24 hours. Prices continued to surge—a total of $1.25 in one week. Normally, they might change 5 cents in a week.
We don’t know where things will go from here. One thing we can tell you is that we hate this as much as you do. Some people are under the misconception that when prices rise, we make more money. The opposite is true. People cut back usage. They have trouble paying their bills, and our receivables skyrocket. Meanwhile, we must pay our suppliers in just ten days. We must borrow much more from the bank. It is an awful mess for everyone.
One thing you can count on is that we will not let you run out. We have been in business for many years and have very strong relationships with suppliers and financial institutions. We are already getting calls from customers who are with other companies that can’t say the same. These customers are unable to get deliveries for 20 days out. You don’t have to worry about that with us.
If you are having trouble paying your bill, talk to us before it becomes a problem. Many times, we can work out something to give you more time, especially if you’ve been with us a while. We can also set you up on a monthly payment plan.
Nothing will make us happier than when prices start dropping. Until then, trust us to look out for you, and let’s pray for the people of Ukraine.
Dear Valued Customer,
Once again, we’re seeing energy prices surge across the board. We know how painful that can be for our customers. It’s painful for us as well.
Gasoline has risen more than a dollar more per gallon vs. a year ago. Natural gas prices have skyrocketed more than 150%. Crude oil prices have climbed above $100 per barrel, a level we haven’t seen in seven years.
The cost of electricity has not been spared either. Higher natural gas prices result in price hikes for wholesale electricity because of heavy reliance on natural gas-fired power plants.
People sometimes misunderstand how negatively all this impacts us as well. We don’t make more money when prices rise like this–we make less. Think of it this way: it’s like when the cost of coffee, milk or orange juice rises. It’s not the local grocery that is profiting. (That’s left to the Wall Street investors). Our customers have a harder time paying their bills. They reduce expenditures. We need to tap into our lines of credit more. Our phones light up with questions. So the sooner energy prices drop, the happier we’ll be.
In the meantime, please talk to us about things we can offer to help you reduce your energy costs, or handle payments more easily. And if you are having trouble with your bills, please call us. We can generally work with you if you reach out before you fall behind.
We’ve been in business for many years and have deep roots in the community. We have secure access to supply. We are doing everything possible to ensure we can deliver—even if other companies cannot—no matter the cost or difficulty we face.
We thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your loyalty. As we’ve done quite a few times in the past, we will get through these tough times by all working together.
By this summer, all the heating oil that Mazzola Oil delivers will be at Bioheat® fuel, thanks to a new state law signed recently by New York Governor Kathy Hochul that requires that all heating oil delivered in the state contains biofuels.
Right now, our customers have the option of Bioheat fuel delivery.
You may be wondering how this new law and the changes that come with it affect you and your oil-fired heating system, and the difference between the heating oil you know and fuels like Bioheat fuel, which is made from biofuels. Read on and learn more.
Bioheat fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil and biodiesel.
Ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) is very different than the heating oil of a few decades ago. ULSHO removed 99% of the sulfur from traditional heating oil. By virtually eliminating the sulfur, greenhouse gas emissions were reduced more than 70% when compared to traditional heating oil.
Biodiesels are created by sustainable, renewable resources including plant oils (sunflower, soybean, rapeseed, and corn), algae, animal fats, and recycled restaurant cooking oils.
Right now, the state law mandates that all heating oil contain at least 5% biofuels by July 1. By 2030, the mandate will be 20% biofuels.
While there are some differences between traditional No. 2 heating oil and Bioheat fuel, there’s one thing they have in common. They can both be used in your home’s heating system and heating oil tank without any need for replacement or adjustments.
Speaking of your heating system, it will love Bioheat! Between the removal of sulfur and the clean burning of biodiesels, Bioheat fuel leaves fewer deposits in your heating system. There’s less wear and tear on your equipment. Your heating system operates more efficiently, saving you money on heating costs. Not only that, Bioheat fuel’s cleaner combustion reduces the number of breakdowns and extends the life of your home heating system!
The move towards biofuels is also good news for our economy. There are about 10 biodiesel producers here in the Northeastern United States that supply the biodiesel used to make Bioheat fuel. Those producers support nearly 5,000 full-time, good-paying jobs with $175 million in annual wages. They also create $1.2 billion in annual economic activity.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul recently signed into law a bill phasing in a requirement for all heating oil sold in the state to contain at least 20% biodiesel.
About 1.4 million homes in New York State are kept warm with heating oil.
This change is being made to reduce emissions from heating oil, which is part of the state’s efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Once the 20% objective is reached, New York’s annual petroleum diesel consumption will be reduced by 200 million gallons each year. That will slash our annual carbon emissions by 1 million metric tons!
The new law gradually increases the amount of biodiesel that must be in heating oil. By July 1, 2022, all heating oil must contain at least 5% biodiesels. In 2025, that requirement goes up to 10%. The 20% requirement takes effect in 2030.
New York’s home heating industry, comprised of businesses such as Mazzola Oil, have long been proponents of biodiesel heating oil blends as part of the industry’s goal to make home heating fuel have net-zero emissions by the year 2050.
Mazzola Oil customers already have the option of having us deliver Bioheat® fuel, which is a blend of biodiesels with ultra-low sulfur heating oil.
Biodiesel is an alternative fuel made from domestically produced low-carbon resources including plant oils such as soybean or rapeseed, recycled restaurant cooking oils, animal fats, and algae.
Biodiesel’s carbon dioxide greenhouse gas emissions are cut by an average of 74% from those of petroleum diesel.
All New Yorkers will benefit from reduced greenhouse gas emissions. But when you use Bioheat fuel from Mazzola, you’ll benefit in other ways.
Because Bioheat fuel burns cleaner than traditional heating oil, your home’s heating system works more efficiently. That can cut your heating costs.
Speaking of your heating system, you don’t have to replace yours or make any adjustments to it in order to use Bioheat fuel. And that clean-burning we just mentioned means less wear and tear on your home’s furnace or boiler. You’ll likely have fewer breakdowns and a longer life expectancy for your heating system, saving you even more money!
You can enjoy the benefits of clean-burning Bioheat fuel in your home. Become a Mazzola Oil customer today!
Have you been worried about the price of heating oil this winter? You’re not alone.
You don’t need to do anything extreme to keep your heating oil costs down this winter. These easy tips can help you do that without sacrificing comfort.
If you haven’t tuned up your home’s furnace or boiler yet, don’t wait any longer! A comprehensive, professional tune-up ensures that your heating system is operating at peak efficiency, so you use the least amount of energy to heat your house. It also enables your service technician to detect and repair any issues that may reduce the efficacy of your heating system during the winter.
When the polar vortex comes to town, will you have enough heating oil in your tank to keep your home warm and comfortable? This is an ideal time to enroll in Automatic Delivery! We’ll track your heating oil usage and fill your tank before you run low.
By preventing drafts, you can save a lot of money on your energy bill each winter. Drafts may raise your heating expenses by up to 20%! Block drafts with weatherstripping, caulk, expanding foam, and door sweeps. If you have forced-air heating, vacuum the registers and vents. Check to see whether any furniture, drapes, or other objects are in the way of the heated air circulation.
Programmable and smart thermostats are excellent tools for increasing the comfort and energy efficiency of your house. If you don’t already have one, now is a fantastic time to purchase one since they might help you save money on your heating costs by 10%.
When the weather is chilly, follow these directions from the Department of Energy for efficient thermostat settings while maintaining your house warm.
Insulation is one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to improve the efficiency of your heating system. Determine what R-Value your house needs and add insulation to reach that. The Department of Energy has additional suggestions for achieving optimal home insulating efficiency. Insulation not only keeps your house warm in the winter, but it also helps to keep it cool throughout the summer for year-round energy savings!
