Current oilprice today $1.46 gal. Outside temp. 17 deg. Inside my living roomgiving me the opportunity to pass on this information to you or whomeverabout this fantastic Jotul F400-Castine a very warm 86 deg.
Ash pan seems a little small being Ihave to empty it every 2 days when burning continuous. Probably normalfor most stoves? Glass doors get very black when burning slow, butbecome crystal clear when I fire it between 500 and 650 degrees on topof stove,not pipe. Every other week end I let stove cool to room temp.and clean glass with RUTLAND glass cleaner with silicone. This is abeautiful casting and would match any living room like a fine piece offurniture. Needless to say we love our F400-Castine. It was a greatinvestment. To the oilman we won't see you to soon!
