Typically, hardware stores, gas stations, and auto repair shops sell kerosene fuel. It can be sold in both pre-packaged and bulk quantities. You can locate gas stations that sell kerosene using online locators or the yellow pages. Some fuel providers, such as Sunoco, provide online location directories.
Kerosene is a heating fuel derived from petroleum distillation. Today, it is used for both jet engines and home heating. It is sold in blue containers instead of red gasoline containers and is less flammable than gasoline. Additionally, kerosene is regulated and sold differently than gasoline, so gas stations that sell gasoline may not necessarily also sell kerosene.
Be sure to purchase kerosene only from vendors who sell state-certified 1-K grade kerosene. Unlabeled kerosene has the potential to be unstable and hazardous. Keep kerosene in a separate container from gasoline and other types of fuel.
Only use new, sealed blue kerosene containers to store kerosene. Using alternative containers, such as metal, glass, or used containers, can contaminate the kerosene or endanger those who handle the containers. When storing kerosene, make sure the containers are properly sealed. Kerosene can be stored for one to three months; however, it should not be stored for an extended period of time, as old kerosene can damage heating systems.
