This service plan is available to all credit approved residential customers. The term of
the Plan is for a one (1) year period and after re-inspection will renew automatically
every year unless terminated by either the customer or Company. No credit will be
issued if the Plan is canceled before the expiration date.
Repairs or services not covered by the Plan will be performed and charged to the
customer at prevailing rates.
The Company will pay up to $1,000 toward the replacement of your oil tank, once
tested and qualified for the TankSure® Program, if a tank leak occurs subsequent to this
test due to internal corrosion, if a tank leak occurs due to a manufacturer's defect, or if a
non-leaking tank is identified for proactive replacement. While we cannot guarantee
that a leak will not occur or your tank will not fail after testing, we are providing these
new services with the hope that by testing and monitoring, we are offering a long-term
proactive tank replacement program for our customers. Accidental damage is not
covered by the TankSure® Program. The TankSure® Program does not cover
environmental cleanup, property damage, waste disposal services, or other damages or
losses caused by a tank leak or system failure even if the tank has been tested and
qualified ultrasonically and is enrolled in the TankSure® Program. To receive the $200
non-qualifying tank replacement discount Auth Fuels must replace the oil tank.
The Service Plan does not cover labor or materials to repair damage to the heating

other failure of electrical system, improper thermostat settings or faulty thermostat,
having heating system switches in the “OFF” position, debris buildup in the air or
venting systems, and other causes related to the improper operation or maintenance of
the heating system by the customer. Damage, repairs, or replacement of parts or
components caused by Acts of God, fire, flood, freezing, storm or weather conditions,
power loss or surges, water damage, and fuel flow problems due to outside fuel storage
are not covered by the Plan.
