Flood Oil Co. of Eden began construction on 24-hour pay-at-the-pump gasoline and diesel pumps; overhead canopy and LED lighting; and a touch-screen register/computer system in December of 2012. Personal gas- pumping service is still available to customers who prefer that smalltown-type customer service.
Flood Oil Company, located in Eden, has been serving the local community for nearly 85 years. With our home and farm fuel delivery, heating and cooling department, and service station, Flood Oil is constantly trying to keep up with the times and changes to modern technology.
One aspect of Flood Oil that hasn't changed in nearly eight decades is our full-service gas station. With a 60-year old diesel pump, and a 30-year old gas pumps, it was time for an upgrade. Starting in December of 2012, we began construction on brand new, 24-hour pay-at-the-pump gasoline and diesel pumps. To protect these new pumps, we also installed an overhead canopy and bright LED lights. To that we also added a touch-screen register/computer system to accompany (but not replace) our handwritten gas receipts.
Despite all of the new changes, Flood Oil still strives to give our customers the same personal, smalltown service they've come to expect. Even with the pay-at-the-pump option, we will still continue to pump any customer's gas that requests or relies on that familiar face to show up at their car window.
Just after the new pumps were completed, Flood Oil lost an integral, long-time dedicated employee, Dan O'Brien. Dan was known and loved by everyone who visited our little corner station. We know he would be just as excited as we are to see all of the changes and progress Flood Oil continues to make.
From all of us at Flood Oil, we'd like to thank our families, friends, and neighbors who have kept us going through good times and bad. May God smile down on our Garden of Eden.
