    Since they're obviously concerned about the environment I wonder how many years they season their wood? :lol: I can't believe someone could be this stupid, unreal. I've heard of some idiots burning oil outside, I can't believe someone would introduce it into their home.

    I had a neighbour that did that on his shop stove. Burned all his used motor oil and waste kerosene.

    Went through a tough time and I burned waste veggie oil given to me by a friend in my old woodstove.
    Put it in a 1lb coffee can and placed the coffee can in a cast iron pot for an emergency containment vessel.
    Threw in a wad of paper for a wick and a little kerosene on top of the oil and slid 'er in the stove.
    Lit the kerosene and let 'er go. Kept us from freezing to death for a couple of months.
    NO, I don't recommend burning this crap in the house.

    That's kinda like a 275 gal fuel oil tank right next to your furnace but a lot less gallons. :coolsmile:

    We did this in a 1/2 open shop in the motor pool way back in TN.
    But not in a house. Even a NC house!
