When a group of householders, in the same area, buy at the same time, for delivery on the same day, they can negotiate a discount with the supplier. This can be significant - in the winter, savings up to 8p/litre. If your tank is small, then the savings are greatest as the supplier incurs a fixed cost to send a tanker to your home, and charge more per litre.
The supplier saves money by sending a vehicle to the area and emptying it. Their vehicle covers fewer miles; their driver spends more time pumping oil and less time driving between customers. Their costs are reduced and that saving is shared with the group. You can also feel ecologically better about it too. There will be fewer lorry movements in your area.
