Kero-Del was conceived in the winter of 1985 when the president, Chip Brosseau, became frustrated that no fuel company would deliver 50 gallon quantities of kerosene to his home for his space heaters.

Armed with this idea, a $1000 loan from “Mom’s Finance Co.”, and a prayer, Kero-Del was born in October of 1986.
A 1964 tank truck was resurrected and put on the street to make the first deliveries in February of 1987, with Chip acting as driver, mechanic, secretary, dispatcher, mechanic, mechanic, mechanic....
