Top 4 Gas Stations With Kerosene Nearby (Including Prices)

Some Sunoco gas stations sell kerosene at the pump

While you can typically find kerosene at hardware stores, there aren’t many gas station chains that sell it.

Sunoco, Speedway, ARCO, and Citgo are the only four gas stations we found that typically sell kerosene.

For more about getting kerosene at a gas station, see below.

Gas Stations That Sell Kerosene

Kerosene (sometimes called paraffin oil) is used to fuel lamps, heaters, and even stoves. The most commonly used and sold type of kerosene is K-1.[1][2]

The following gas stations sell kerosene at the pump at select locations, and all locations require that you bring your own kerosene can.

You may also be required to show an ID to purchase kerosene due to its classification as hazardous.[2]

Note that availability can vary for individual gas stations, even if the company as a whole typically sells kerosene.

To find out if a location near you sells kerosene, you may be able to filter the search options in the gas station’s locator on its website. You can also call the location you intend to visit directly to ask.

We’ve ordered the list below starting with the most cost-effective options.
