Especially in that with many years in Connecticut and now Denver, I can't remember my car interior getting noticeably un-warm while I filled up, even in blustery teens down to zero. Of course, I do remember to close the door. Maybe that's it.
Actually, if you had paid attention, I mentioned the heat in my truck does not work. oops- there goes your unfounded theory. Try another one.

I wonder this same thing. I have never had my oil dealer come in and tell me to turn off my furnace so he can put more oil in the tank.

Obviously gasoline is more volatile, but isn't it pretty much the same thing?

I donít know if oil gives off a vapor like gas?

It definitely does--that's what you smell after the delivery.

Still, gas is more volatile and the gases from an oil delivery are all on the outside of the house, far from the furnace.
