Your Maryland Heating Fuel Connection

Q-Dog Offers The Best Value For Propane And Heating Oil

fuel delivery St. Mary's county, md For nearly 80 years, the Q-Dog Quality Discount Oil & Gas team has provided heating fuel services to Maryland households. We’re proud of the loyalty we established with families in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, Southern Anne Arundel and Southern Prince George’s counties, and we’ve found that a big part of why folks trust us is that we’re focused on getting them the fairest price for their heating oil and propane.

That’s why we encourage our customers to use us for their heating fuel and point them toward trustworthy companies to handle their equipment maintenance and repairs.

Why It Pays to Buy Fuel from Q-Dog

Early on, Q-Dog made a deliberate choice to focus exclusively on fuel delivery and distribution. We watched as competitors went out of business, and the remaining heating oil and propane businesses around us tried bumping up their rates to turn a quick profit.

We also noticed that companies maintaining a burner service department tended to pass on those costs to fuel delivery customers. In-house service departments are notorious money losers for these companies, so they must make up the shortfall by bumping up their per-gallon price. That means that even if you don’t use the company’s technicians, you’re still paying for them.

We made the conscious decision not to have a service department that would raise prices for all our fuel customers. It also means we can focus entirely on optimizing the propane and heating oil delivery we offer. Our attention is locked on keeping our fuel deliveries on track and ensuring you never run out of heating fuel.

Offering Additional Savings on Fuel

Not only do we keep our operations lean to lower operational costs and ensure the most affordable propane and heating oil, but we also make it easy for you to stack up discounts, including:

  • A 25-cent-per-gallon discount on your first Automatic Delivery fill
  • A 5-cent-per-gallon discount on all subsequent Automatic Deliveries
  • A 5-cent-per-gallon discount when you arrange auto charge with a credit card or EFT

With these year-round promotions, you can be confident you’re getting the best heating oil or propane price in our service area!

Need Equipment Service? Q-Dog Can Still Help!

Having your boiler or furnace serviced about once every year is still important. This ensures the best possible fuel efficiency to lower your annual energy costs. Routine maintenance also improves your home comfort and slows wear and tear on your heating system.

Our team can help you get top-quality equipment maintenance. Q-Dog has a list of recommended service providers in each area we serve. Based on customer feedback, we’re confident these equipment service vendors can handle your maintenance needs.

At Q-Dog, we are committed to providing the highest quality heating oil and propane so you enjoy maximum comfort throughout the winter and all year long.

Is Your Heating Oil Supply Ready for The Winter?

Arrange a fall heating oil delivery today.

heating oil  Charles county, md Doesn’t it feel like things get busier the later in the year we get?

The fall months mean raking leaves, buying Halloween costumes and getting holiday plans in order. It can be easy to forget some pretty important tasks, including ensuring you have a full heating oil tank before winter arrives.

At Q-Dog Quality Discount Oil & Gas, we don’t want you to be surprised by an empty fuel tank on a freezing early winter night. That’s why we recommend you arrange your first heating oil delivery right now.

Order your heating oil before winter arrives.

It’s never a good decision to wait until the last minute. Anyone who ever had to buy a snow shovel right before a blizzard rolled in can attest to that.
Getting ahead of the rush with a fall heating oil delivery has a lot of advantages:

  1. Our delivery team will have more availability when temperatures are warmer.
  2. You won’t be risking an unexpected heating interruption.
  3. Heating oil prices tend to be better when demand is low.
  4. Heating oil’s shelf life is roughly 18 to 24 months, so your fuel will be good to go when you need it!

How much heating oil will you need this winter?

Many variables can affect how much fuel you’ll use during the heating season, including your home size, the age of the people living with you and the intensity of the weather we experience this winter in Maryland.

That said, we have found that the average 2,500-square-foot house goes through about five to eight gallons of heating oil each day during the colder months. If you have a 275-gallon tank, you could go through a full tank of heating oil in a month during the winter.

We all know that the weather can be unpredictable in Maryland. So, it’s not a good idea to put off your heating oil delivery and hope temperatures don’t drop unexpectedly. At Q-Dog, we recommend that customers contact us when their oil tank is about one-quarter full, which can help prevent surprising runouts.

Q-Dog makes heating oil delivery a breeze!

You can avoid all runout risks with Q-Dog. We offer free automatic delivery to all our customers in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, southern Anne Arundel and southern Prince George’s counties.

How Long Does Propane Last?

What to expect from your propane, propane tank and gas-fired equipment.

propane expiration Calvert county, md Life has a lot of moving parts to keep track of. It can be mind-spinning, coordinating your family schedule for work, school, activities and errands. How often have you smacked your forehead, realizing that you’d let the grass grow too long, hadn’t done the kids’ laundry for the week, or hadn’t restocked the fridge?

Luckily, Q-Dog Quality Discount Oil & Gas is here to help you stay ahead of the game with your home’s propane delivery. We can answer all your questions if you heat your home with propane.

What is the shelf life of propane?

Look in your refrigerator. You’ll see that pretty much every food or beverage in there has some sort of expiration date. The same is true of the drugs in your medicine cabinet. And gasoline for your car or lawnmower only has a shelf life of three to six months.

What about propane? How long will it last before “going bad.”

The short answer is propane won’t go bad. Propane does not degrade, making it ideal for long-term storage. For example, even if your propane standby generator has gone unused for over a year, its fuel will be ready if the grid goes down tomorrow in your region!

How long does a propane tank last?

Today’s home propane tanks are built for safety and durability, using heavy materials and corrosion-proofing. So, a well-manufactured tank like the ones we offer at Q-Dog can last 30 years or longer with proper maintenance. Underground propane tanks have a slightly lower life expectancy: between 20 and 30 years, depending on the type of soil in your area.

How long will my fuel last before I need a propane delivery?

How long your home’s fuel supply lasts depends on how large your propane tank is and what propane-fired equipment you use. For example, a residential furnace generates 100,000 Btu of heat, and one gallon of propane equals about 92,000 Btu. Consequently, a furnace running at full power for one hour will use roughly one gallon of propane.

Propane products like water heaters, stoves, clothes dryers or gas fireplaces will increase this usage. did an analysis and estimated that, in a cold week, a standard propane-heated home would use between 92.4 gallons/week (at 25% capacity) and 277.2 gallons/week (at 75% capacity for 12 hours/day). If you have a 500-gallon propane tank, you might need to receive a delivery every two to four weeks in the coldest months of the year. (In warmer months, you can go much longer between deliveries.)

Q-Dog’s team can help you identify the right propane tank size to minimize how often you need to order fuel.

Q-Dog helps ensure you never run out of propane.

Running out of propane is a serious inconvenience. It can leave you stranded without heating or hot water, and we can’t refill your empty tank until a safety/leak check is performed. But families in Maryland’s Calvert, Charles, Prince Georges, and Anne Arundel counties can rest easy. Q-Dog has several ways to prevent runouts, including FREE Automatic Delivery and optional propane tank monitoring services.

What Color Is Diesel Fuel?

Your diesel’s color tells you a lot about what it’s used for.

diesel supplier Prince George county, md Diesel is an indispensable fuel for a range of Maryland businesses. Vehicle fleets count on it to stay on the road. Farms need it to power generators and equipment. Construction needs diesel fuel for excavation and lifting, and plenty of manufacturing and distribution companies use it to fuel their forklifts.

These are just a few of the standard uses for diesel fuel, but did you know that it comes in multiple colors? As the most trusted fuel retailer in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, Southern Anne Arundel and Southern Prince George’s counties, Q-Dog delivers both clear and red diesel to countless businesses — and we can tell you what color you need!

What do diesel colors mean?

The color of the diesel you purchase indicates whether it is for on-road or off-road use. On-road diesel is undyed, with a color that ranges from clear to yellowish. The diesel that comes out of a service station pump is typically clear. On the other hand, off-road diesel is dyed red.

What’s the difference between on-road and off-road diesel?

There really is no physical difference between the on-road and off-road diesel beyond the fact that the latter is dyed red. They are essentially the same distillate of crude oil. However, undyed road diesel is subject to taxes that make it more expensive than off-road diesel.

Off-road diesel is less pricy, but you cannot use it in a road vehicle like a bus or delivery truck. If you are found to have off-road diesel in the tank of a road vehicle, you will face significant fines.

How is diesel fuel different from heating oil or gasoline?

As you may know, diesel, heating oil and gasoline all come from crude oil, but they are different distillates and function in different ways.

Gasoline is a lighter distillate of crude oil, and it’s much more flammable than diesel. All that gasoline requires to combust in an engine is a spark. It’s also light enough that it will evaporate in the open air.

Diesel, on the other hand, is denser. This is one of the reasons it has a longer shelf life than gasoline (up to a year, compared to gasoline’s three to six months). Diesel is also less flammable in liquid form. A lit match dropped into a bucket of diesel would go out like it was dropped in water. To combust in an engine, diesel fuel must be compressed, making it extremely hot.

Traditional heating oil is virtually identical to off-road diesel. The burner in your home’s oil furnace or boiler must turn the oil into a fine mist to ignite it. Additionally, some of today’s home heating oil incorporates biodiesel made from organic and recycled feedstocks.

Q-Dog has premium heating oil and diesel.

Whether you need heating oil for your home or diesel for your business, Q-Dog can help. Our on-road and off-road fuels are ultra-low-sulfur. Plus, you can be confident that you’re receiving this top-quality fuel at a fair price with no hidden fees.

What’s That Sludge in My Heating Oil Tank?

Q-Dog can help you keep your oil tank, equipment and fuel safe.

oil sludge Anne Arundel county, md We talk to many customers about the best way to keep their home heating equipment running efficiently and with fewer breakdowns. One of the significant pitfalls homeowners with oilheat systems face is sludge build-up. We recommend you take the opportunity this summer to make sure your heating system is protected from sludge.

Sludge is a serious concern of oil-fired heating systems.

Oil tank sludge is made of dirt, debris, water, rust flakes, and microorganisms like mold and bacteria. It forms when moisture and leftover oil sit in your tank for a long time. The warmer months, when you aren’t using as much oil, are when your tank is especially vulnerable to sludge accumulation.

You’ll notice that the pickup line that connects your oil tank to your heating system is a few inches from the bottom of your tank. This is to prevent sludge from entering the fuel line, where it can cause clogs. If sludge reaches your furnace or boiler, it can reduce efficiency or cause a breakdown.

Unfortunately, sludge can be churned up when oil is added to your tank, making it more likely to enter your fuel lines.

Don’t leave your oil tank near-empty through the summer.

The most crucial thing you can do to prevent sludge formation is to keep a mostly-full tank over the warm months. If you finished the heating season with less than a quarter-full tank, it’s a good idea to get a heating oil delivery.

Empty space in a tank leads to condensation on the inner wall. This moisture will drift to the bottom of the tank, promoting sludge formation. If you fill your tank this summer, you can stymy the sludge and be ready for winter extra-early. And don’t worry — heating oil has a long shelf life (between 18 and 24 months).

Heating oil quality matters.

The better the quality of your heating fuel is, the less likely it will be to foster bacterial growth. As a Q-Dog customer, you can be confident that you’re receiving a premium product. This will go a long way toward keeping your oil tank secure.

Pay attention to the warning signs of oil tank failure.

Sludge can be an indicator of other issues with an aging oil tank. A tank can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, but it‘s a severe concern when one fails. Oil spills can be expensive and disruptive to remedy.
We suggest that you take a moment this summer to look over your tank for these warning signs of corrosion:

  1. Rust, warping or dents on the tank body.
  2. Wet spots on the tank.
  3. Oil on the floor around the tank.
  4. Pinhole oil leaks.

If your tank shows any of these warning signs, Q-Dog can refer you to a service company from our fully-vetted “Recommended Service Provider” list. These reliable companies can inspect your tank, make needed repairs and suggest a replacement model if necessary.

Q-Dog proudly serves households in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, Southern Anne Arundel and Southern Prince George’s counties. If you need an off-season oil tank fill to prevent condensation, order your fuel from us today!

How To Check Your Propane Tank Gauge

Q-Dog helps you ensure you never run out of propane.

checking propane St. Mary's county, md Take a moment and think about all the moments in your day that rely on propane. Depending on the time of year, you could be counting on a propane-fired boiler or furnace so that you can wake up in a comfortable bedroom. Your morning shower would be awfully frigid without a propane water heater, and you need a propane flame on your gas range to fry up eggs and bacon for breakfast. Many families need propane to dry their wet laundry, too.

Then there are home amenities that run on propane, including hearth products, outdoor fire pits and pool heaters. Additionally, many of the households that Q-Dog serves in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, southern Anne Arundel and southern Prince George’s counties have propane-powered backup generators to protect them from all-too-common grid outages.

As you can see, propane is an amazingly adaptable home fuel, which illustrates why it’s so crucial to keep enough propane in your home’s tank. If you let your propane tank run out entirely, a propane technician will need to perform leak and pressure tests before you can receive a fuel delivery and get all these vital systems and appliances back online.

How do I read a propane tank gauge?

If you still contact us every time you need a “will-call” propane delivery, then you need to be able to read your stationary tank’s gauge. It’s typically located under a dome lid on top of the tank. You can lift the lid to read this gauge, which resembles a vehicle’s speedometer. You’ll see numbers from 5 to 95, which indicate the percentage fill of your tank. Be sure to contact us when your tank is about 30 percent full.

Why does my tank gauge never go to 100 percent?

Please note that propane companies only fill aboveground propane tanks to 80 percent. We do this because propane can expand quite a bit when outdoor temperatures rise, and empty space in the tank allows for safe fuel expansion. (Underground tanks can sometimes be filled higher because they are better insulated from heat fluctuations.)

How can I avoid propane run-outs altogether?

While some customers check their tank gauges regularly and call us for individual propane deliveries, many more choose to take advantage of our free automatic delivery option.

With automatic delivery, Q-Dog takes care of planning your propane deliveries. We use your customer order history and incorporate weather patterns for our region. With this data, we can determine how much propane you use each day. When we estimate that your tank is approaching 30 percent, we preemptively schedule a delivery. You don’t need to worry about running out of fuel, and you don’t end up using more propane, either. You only pay us for the fuel that goes into your tank. This is the 100-percent stress-free fuel delivery alternative.

Put propane run-out risks behind you and say hello to complete peace of mind. Contact the Q-Dog team today and get started with automatic delivery.

How Much Fuel Will a Semi Truck Hold?

Q-Dog’s diesel delivery trucks are always on the road!

diesel fleet fueling Charles county, md If you live and work near our home base in Prince Frederick or any of the surrounding Maryland counties we serve, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen our distinctive red-and-white Q-Dog delivery trucks on the road.

Of all the commercial fuels we deliver, perhaps the most popular one is diesel fuel. Many trucking operations count on Q-Dog diesel to keep their semi-trucks moving. Here’s a rundown of how semi trucks use diesel — and how much fuel they can hold.

Why is diesel an excellent option for commercial trucking?

We like to say that there is no “off-season” for diesel. To put it simply, commercial ventures run on diesel all year round. Farms and construction sites depend on off-road diesel for equipment and power generators. Municipalities, movers and other vehicle fleets count on undyed road diesel. Demand is always high.

Why is diesel so popular as a commercial fuel?

  1. Low sulfur emissions — Since the Environmental Protection Agency changed emissions standards in 2006, diesel has been an ultra-low-sulfur fuel, which has led to significant improvements in its environmental impact. It also reduces wear and tear on your diesel engine, lowering your maintenance costs!
  2. Better engine performance — Diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines. The reason is that diesel combustion contains 10 to 15 percent more energy. As a result, diesel vehicles can often travel from 20 to 35 percent farther on a gallon of fuel.
  3. Higher torque outputs — This gives vehicles with diesel engines better towing and overtaking power.

There’s no denying that diesel is more expensive than gasoline, but lower maintenance and higher engine performance and power add up to a better overall driving experience. This is particularly true of commercial semi-trucks, which need to stay on the road longer than personal vehicles.

How much diesel fuel does it take to fill a semi truck’s tank?

Generally, a semi truck’s fuel tank is between 120 and 150 gallons. Of course, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recommends only filling the tank to 95 percent. This allows for fuel expansion and prevents spillage.

With an average fuel economy of roughly 6.5 miles per gallon, your semi truck could log over 900 miles on a tank of diesel!

Q-Dog delivers premium diesel directly to your business.

Do you have a fleet of semi trucks that need regular fueling? Are you sick and tired of having drivers lined up at a gas station? Just think of how many work hours you lose each week with that annoying process.

Turn to Q-Dog for competitively priced commercial fuel reliably delivered by certified professionals. We will bring the diesel to you. Our state-of-the-art trucks are tracked with GPS, so you’ll always know how close your delivery is. We’ve been serving southern Maryland for nearly 80 years.

pay energy bill Calvert county, md Whether you’re a heating oil or propane customer, the team at Q-Dog wants to make paying for your fuel easy and stress-free.

But sometimes that’s easier said than done. We understand that budgeting for heating fuel can be unpredictable — occasionally even nerve-wracking.

This is incredibly inconvenient since this time of the year involves holiday and tax time expenses, too.

But don’t worry. When you do business with Q-Dog, we offer payment options and discounts to stabilize your billing and lower your per-gallon rate. Take a moment to read about all the ways to lower your monthly bills without sacrificing home comfort.

Take the uncertainty (and high winter bills) out of fuel payments.

You no longer need to wonder how much you’ll pay each month, and your winter bills will be slashed virtually in half!

You don’t end up paying more for fuel on a Budget Plan. If your season’s fuel ends up costing more or less than we estimated, we’ll adjust the plan. Ultimately, you only pay for the fuel you received at the price on the day it was delivered — not a penny more.

Q-Dog lets you pile discounts on top of discounts!

At Q-Dog, we accept payment by cash, check, electronic fund transfer and all major credit cards. And we offer discounts on your fuel, depending on the payment method and delivery option you select:

Diesel vs. Gasoline: Why Is One More Expensive?

These two fuels serve different roles and face different economic drivers.

diesel and gas calvert county, md For truck drivers, construction managers and other professionals who rely on diesel, it seems the fuel is always more expensive than gasoline. This is certainly the case these days. While both on-road diesel and gasoline prices rose in 2022, gasoline rates have dropped faster than diesel.

But diesel wasn’t always more expensive. As recently as the early 2000s, diesel was regularly cheaper per gallon than unleaded gas. What changed?

Here’s an explanation of how diesel differs from gasoline and what economic factors make diesel pricier at the pump.

How are diesel and gasoline different?

Let’s start by discussing what they have in common. Both diesel and gasoline are distillates of crude oil. But they have different physical properties and serve different roles.

Diesel is denser than gasoline. It won’t evaporate in the open air as gas does. The engines and other equipment that burn diesel need to apply pressure to make it combust. By contrast, gasoline requires only a spark to combust. It also contains additives for engine performance that diesel does not.

Gasoline’s shelf life is shorter than diesel’s. Gas starts deteriorating after three to six months, while diesel remains stable for a year or longer. Additionally, diesel produces 10 to 20 percent more energy in combustion than gasoline.

It’s also worth noting that diesel can be used for both on- and off-road purposes. Off-road diesel is dyed, and it’s subject to fewer taxes than road diesel. (More on taxes in a moment.)

Why is diesel more expensive than gasoline?

The variables that lead to diesel being more expensive than gasoline involve government regulations, taxation and global markets.

Regulations and production costs. In 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency changed emissions standards for diesel, reducing its sulfur content to 15 parts per million. This was a significant step in improving the fuel’s performance and environmental impact. However, the changes to its refining process significantly increased production costs.

Taxes. The federal motor fuel excise tax is 18.4 cents per gallon for gas gasoline but 24.4 cents per gallon for on-road diesel. You also need to factor in state taxes, which are typically higher on diesel.

Global demand. Simply put, the commercial demand for diesel is high year-round. Plus, you get less diesel from each barrel of oil. A barrel of crude can yield 19-20 gallons of gasoline but only 11-12 gallons of diesel. And now, with global conflicts leading to export cut-offs, there aren’t enough refineries to meet demand.

Q-Dog is here when you need diesel for your business.

As you can see, plenty of large-scale factors cause diesel prices to rise, and local fuel companies can’t do much to impact them, unfortunately. But commercial customers in Maryland’s Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties trust Q-Dog to dependably and safely deliver their diesel.

We work hard every day to secure the best possible fuel price, and we’re always transparent.

Let’s work together to keep your fleet moving and your commercial equipment fully fueled. Join the community of happy Q-Dog customers.

Discover the Many Benefits of Heating Oil

Today’s heating oil is more efficient, safe and clean-burning than ever!

why heating oil maryland If you’re a homeowner who uses heating oil in Calvert, Charles, St. Mary’s, southern Anne Arundel or southern Prince George’s County, you enjoy optimal heating and low emissions. The heating oil you’re using in your home is lightyears removed from the fuel your grandparents used.

Here are four substantial benefits of modern heating oil.

You get a lot of heat and efficiency from your fuel.

Heating oil produces one of the hottest flames of any fuel. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that a single gallon of heating oil generates about 138,500 Btu. That’s more heat production than an equivalent amount of electricity or natural gas. With heating oil, you can more efficiently keep your home warm.

This means that your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard, and you don’t have to burn as much fuel to stay comfortable in the winter.

Your family is safe with heating oil.

Heating oil is also exceptionally safe. It is not an explosion risk like natural gas can be. For heating oil to burn, it must be heated to over 140 degrees Fahrenheit and vaporized. This is what your furnace or boiler does to ignite it. In liquid form and at normal temperatures, heating oil will not burn. If you dropped a lit match into a bucket of heating oil, it would go out immediately.

While there is a risk of a costly cleanup if your heating oil tank leaks, modern oil tanks have superior designs and construction that make them virtually leak-proof.

Heating oil is cleaner than ever.

If your image of heating oil is black smoke and soot, you’ll be amazed at the advances this fuel has made. Petroleum-based heating oil has a sulfur content l of only 15 parts per million, down from roughly 4,000. Ultra-low sulfur heating oil is much better for air quality.

Today, fuel producers and retailers blend ultra-low sulfur heating oil with biofuel to create Bioheat® fuel. Biofuel is a renewable product made from organic and recycled ingredients like used cooking oil, soybeans, animal fats and algae. This blend significantly reduces heating oil’s carbon, mercury and particulate matter emissions.

Today’s heating oil keeps your equipment running smoothly.

Modern heating oil burns much cleaner than the fuels of years past, which is excellent news for your furnace or boiler. It leaves fewer deposits in your equipment. This reduces wear and tear and extends your system’s life expectancy. It also means you’ll need less frequent burner cleanings and tune-ups.
