About Crown Oil

At Crown Oil, we’re immensely proud of our high levels of service and the relationships we build with our customers. That’s why we’ve seen such incredible growth over the last 75 years, and it’s why we need you to help continue that growth.

As a family run business that started out selling lamp oil door to door in 1928, we’ve seen it all – and we’ve got to know the industry inside out. But times are changing for the oil industry and we’re leading that change.

We’re excited to be transitioning to becoming the first UK fuel supplier to achieve Net Zero direct emissions by 2030 with a number of green fuels now a key offering in our product mix.

There’s no better time to join the Crown Group, as we embark on a pivotal moment in our journey.
