    I have enjoyed your site and will recommend it. Yet, I note that you have no listings for kerosene in your tables. What are the BTU values for kerosene and the efficiency of kerosene heaters?


    Thanks for the suggestion. Kerosene is very close to heating oil (really the same thing). That's about 140K BTU per Gallon. Use a figure of 90% in the efficiency and you'll be about right.
