Putting the Customer at the Heart of Everything We Do
24/7 fuel-related support, come rain or shine.
As a local, family-run business, we understand just how important it is to have a fuel supplier that you can count on. From Net Zero Packages to emergency commercial fuel deliveries, we’re on hand day and night to keep your business fuelled and your home warm.
Unrivalled levels of service
Finding the best price for your fuel is easy. It’s our friendly service and first-class local knowledge that puts us leagues ahead of the competition.
Our philosophy is simple: to be large enough to fulfill nationwide deliveries whilst retaining the flexibility to arrange emergency deliveries on a same day / next day basis.
Local is where our heart Is
With our headquarters located in Bury, Greater Manchester, we’re passionate about working with local businesses to help make a difference in our local community.
From sponsoring events to donating alternative fuels to help reduce local emissions, we understand that it’s never been more important to support local and shop local.
Fast local deliveries
From our humble beginnings in 1947, selling lamp oil door to door in Heywood to our most recent acquisition of local business Star Oil, we continue to deliver the same reliable, friendly service first made famous almost a century ago.
Choose a local supplier you can rely on to fuel your business 7 days a week.

Our commitment to the environment
We have one simple goal: to have Net Zero Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2030. With over 75 years’ experience, we recognise that our operations directly influence the environment and continuously seek ways to reduce own emissions and our customers’ too.
Crown Oil is the first UK fuel supplier to be certified carbon neutral since April 2022. Our next goal?Net Zero direct emissions (scope 1 and 2) by 2030 or sooner.
We’re proud to be the first and only UK fuel supplier to run our entire fleet on HVO fuel. We hope this move showcases its ability to perform faultlessly as a diesel alternative and encourages other businesses to go green in their fleet too.

Crown Oil’s History
Harry Greensmith began selling lamp oil door to door in Heywood, where he was popularly known as Harry Lamp Oil, thanks to his kind manner and reliable service.
After years spent growing his business and supporting his local community during WW2, he expanded his product range to include the bulk sale and distribution of fuels and lubricants.
We have since continued to grow, where we now specialise in providing efficient oil, alternative fuels and lubricant deliveries to both commercial and domestic customers, across the UK. Scroll down to the below timeline to follow our journey.
