Over 82 Years of Reliable Fuel Service
CERNAK FUEL - family owned and operated since 1935
Cernak Fuel of Easthampton, MA, is one of the premier fuel oil companies in Western Massachusetts. Cernak delivers a superior premium fuel oil with a performance enhancing additive, at the price others charge for basic oil. The environmentally friendly BioHeat® fuel oil is also available at low competitive prices to the cities and towns they serve in Hampshire, Hampden and Franklin counties in the Pioneer Valley.
Cernak Fuel has been continuously owned and operated by the Cernak family since it began in 1935 with John Cernak making local deliveries of petroleum products as a one truck operation. In 1957, John’s brother, Michael Cernak took the helm and continued to grow the business with the addition of a shop adjacent to the truck garage (in 1967) and a bulk fuel storage facility (in the 1970s and 1980s). He felt that it was important for customers to have service in the event of an emergency, and started the in-house service department with 24/7 emergency service. In 1987 two of Mike’s children Rick and Leslie began running the business and by 2008 they expanded the delivery area into the upper Pioneer Valley to the Vermont line and south to Chicopee and South Hadley. Cernak Fuel delivers heating oil and diesel fuel to homeowners, landlords and businesses.
Leslie Cernak serves on the board of directors, of NEFI (New England Fuel Institute) and MEMA (Mass. Energy Marketers Association)
Cernak Fuel is large enough to meet customer needs...yet small enough to still know most customers by name.
