Fuel, fuel cards and LPG

Our fuel department has everything you need.

Two decades of experience and knowledge driving the day-to-day running needs of your business.

The last few years have seen some very significant changes in the distribution of fuel across the UK farming landscape in general, with some of the smaller, independent distributors taken over by larger ones, resulting in diminished competition over time.

Nevertheless, driving the day-to-day running needs of your business - with two decades of experience and knowledge to hand - is the Woldmarsh Fuel Department.

Fuel and LPG

Acting on your behalf to deliver value for money on your chosen products, when you want them, Woldmarsh’s Fuel Department will do all the legwork to get you the best prices and expected delivery slot.

In a typical year, Woldmarsh buys over 40 million litres of fuel, for more than, 3,500 sites as well as 650,000 litres of Adblue. Within the agricultural sector, we are one of the largest buyers of fuel in the East Midlands and Yorkshire, enabling us to help you buy smarter in the current market.

Whether you need to fill your bulk gas storage tank, buy gas oil, derv, EN590, Kero or simply need to talk through your options, we can help. If you want to evaluate the right time to buy, our buyers are plugged in real time to the fuel markets. At any given minute we know the market trends. When an external event influences the market speculators, we know about it and see its effect on prices. If the market is going down, we can advise you to wait for the fall in price to filter through to the distributor networks. If it is going up, we can make sure your order is in before the distributors react and put their prices up.

With 20 years of industry experience, including time spent with the two largest fuel suppliers in the UK, the fuel team’s network includes 17 fuel suppliers and the biggest two bulk gas suppliers in the UK, as well as four bottle gas suppliers and nine wood pellet/chip providers.

With the inside track on daily fuel prices and delivery windows, even for members who need urgent fuel deliveries, our experienced fuel team can support Woldmarsh members with:

  • Product information
  • Fuel cards prices
  • Gas prices - bulk and bottles
  • Delivery times and expectations
  • Renewables - including wood pellets and wood chip
