I will be moving from my current apartment in Passaic county new jersey to Bloomfield New Jersey. Unfortunately, there is about 300 gallons of oil in the tank here that I'm still paying for and the new apartment has a 500 gallon tank that is empty so that will need to be filled. With these high oil prices, why isn't there a way to cipher the oil and reuse or resell?
the landlord at my current location will not work anything out with me and I have a feeling that she will move one of her family members into this apartment, because she hasn't been showing it. Anyone else found themselves in this situation before?

If you have a lease, look to see if there is a clause about what happens to oil that your purchased that you leave behind. If you're supplying your own oil heat, there should be some provision for that. I know in selling and buying houses there is always a credit for this.

The lease only indicates that the renter is responsible for the oil. Unfortunately that is me, there's nothing about a credit, so basically I'm giving away $1200 worth of oil

unfortunately fuel cans are 5 gallons each so would be a female dog to transport.

Know neighbors? Offer it to them at 3 bucks a gallon? Couple hours work with 2 cans but could be worth it.

If the apartment is re-leased arent you off the hook for rent? If re-occcupied I would think the same thing. Dont make threats. Its best to let uncooperative nasty people make their error without letting them know you will be watching. If the landlord re-occupies it in any form and still charges you for rent. Small claims court for fraud.

If I were in Passaic Id buy your oil at a discount. This winter is gonna be BRUTAL bills wise.

*******IDEA 2. Craigs list the oil. Someone local might be interested and could happen very quickly. CASH ONLY. Its better to lose 300 bucks than 1200 bucks.******

Try calling your oil company...can you use the same oil company where you are moving to? They may be willing to remove the remaining oil..and credit it back to you at you new place.
