The Maplesteads Fuel Syndicate is a free-to-join, independent home heating oil buying collective that Oil Tankerseeks out competitive prices, saving its members from the hassle of continually researching and comparing ever-changing market rates.

Many villagers in the Maplesteads – and the surrounding villages of Pebmarsh, Gestingthorpe & Wickham St Paul – save money each year when buying home heating oil, benefitting from the bulk ordering power of the MFS.
