Looking for a place that sells kerosene in Nassau. Only need a small amount, like 5 gallons. It used to be available all over the place in the early 80s. I am located in East Meadow and the only place that I know of that still sells it now is a gas station on Jericho turnpike in Syosset, but would like to find a place closer.

The best place to get small quantities of undyed kerosene in Long Island is Hess. They don't sell it at all locations, but I get mine at 540 W. Old Country Rd, Hicksville. Hess has a nice store locator where you can select Kerosene in your search criteria at Hess Express Store Locator (http://www.hessexpress.com/locations/default.aspx - broken link). Picked mine up today for $3.25/gal.

Thank you for the information about Hess.
Looks like that location in Hicksville is the one that is closest to me, so I will be going there.

Try the gas station on the corner of North Jerusalem and Bellmore Road in North Bellmore. The station sells racing fuel and I have seen a pump that says Kerosene on it.

Default Kerosene No More

The Hess station at the corner of Old Country Road and Charlotte Avenue redid all thier tanks and stuff, and they no longer sell kerosene.
Where to buy kerosene now?

Their price is $42.97 for 5 gallons. AT $8.60 per gallon, I think I will pass.

Still looking for a source of kerosene. In case of a power failure during a storm, I would still like to be able to have some heat this winter.

We always used diesel in our kero heaters at work. Add a pint of isopropyl alcohol per 5 gl diesel to reduce the smell. Worked fine for us for 20+ yrs.
