    We have been driving across state to get a decent price. But occasionally you get in bind buy from the closest supply house. They love to see a cash account walk in the door, so I've found out.

    Maybe it is because we have a long standing relationship with a refrigerant supplier/reclaimer, but we are still paying less than $300 a jug for virgin R-22...
    I'm paying less than 300 at two of my suppliers for my personal account & have another outlet if need be for less than 300. That's why I've yet to look into any replacement. The price is still very affordable

    So here is a technical question for you experienced guys. What should I keep on my truck?
    Location,Location,Location makes all the difference.
    When I first got into the oil heating business I tried to have it all after listening to other guys in the trade by the internet. But after a year or two I started to realize many things just weren't needed, mostly because supply houses didn't carry the line, so none were sold in my service area. I would suggest to start keeping a list of the units you are servicing now as a guide for stock needs.

    Maybe it's $500.00 for a 50lb drum?

    The oil business runs this town. It is the busiest and most expensive place I have ever been. They have these man camps that rent out mobile homes for 150 a night for each bedroom. The crazy part is oil companies lease everyroom per contract of camp being built.
