About Tank Topper

DTAS Oil Buying was born out of a partnership between the Development Trust Association Scotland and Craggs Energy Limited; an English North West and Yorkshire based fuel distributor and a company who offer an online oil buying platform.

The Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTAS) is a membership organisation which supports and represents development trusts throughout Scotland. We are aware that a key issue in many rural communities is oil buying, and the price of oil (and other issues around the purchase and delivery of oil) frequently arise within community consultations.

In response to this DTA Scotland has been working in conjunction with some of our rural members to explore how a ‘community response’ could be developed. We are aware that traditional community buying initiatives can be administratively demanding on small local organisations, but feel we have found a way forward which combines the best elements of community buying with a more up to date approach to the purchase of oil.

DTAS Oil Buying is an innovative, new oil buying service which provides:

  1. a better deal and service for individual customers (households, community, voluntary organisations and local businesses)
  2. a way for development trusts to develop a local oil buying initiative without a heavy administrative burden
  3. an opportunity for individual development trusts to generate an income for their local community
