    Abstract

    In the original Levittown development on Long Island there are about 18,000 homes within a confined radius of approximately 6 miles. These homes are equipped with three variations of oil-burning equipment—rotary, high-pressure gun, and a low-pressure-type furnace, with oil rates ranging from 1/2 to 1 gal per hr. The furnace is located in the kitchen, so obviously proper and clean combustion is a must, and this, of course, ties in with clean fuel oil. In our case, we probably should discuss customer stability rather than oil stability. When you have a concentration of customers in such close proximity, they become very folksy and discuss the daily happenings. Very often we may receive calls from neighbors on the same day for the same cause, although only one has a legitimate complaint.
