    I just found 2.5 on another website... I will adjust. I made a mistake and thought the bags were 50 lbs each and not 40.

    I updated my spread sheet.. Over all saving did not change because it was calculated using the correct conversion.. what did change was the equivalent oil used per month.

    Only 17 bags burned since october? Guess you are mainly heating with wood and only supplementing with the pellets

    I had to edit my previous post... I have burned 37 bags since October. I am heating a 400 sq ft wing of my ranch. Main 1500 ft is heated by a wood insert. I just received my last oil bill and it appears that these are pretty good estimates although it is hard to compare because we know keep the room much warmer than we did when we heated it with oil... my guess is an average of 4 degrees warmer.

    That is the problem with trying to compare the wood pellets to oil. before i had the stove i kept the t stat at 66 (cold) and now the house is in the 70's big difference. The oil consumption would go up alot if i was to heat the house in the 70,s with oil

    Dam it! Back to the PBR I guess. If I cant find PBR ill look for Milwaukee's Best. If I drink that too long though, I'll have to buy a Ford. Suicide watch for me!

    The you better not touch refers to me :) if you showed up at my house I'd give all the Shock Top in the fridge which is only a 6 pack + or -. which only a snack;) I could back you up with Busch Lite have double digits of those.

    Busch Light will do! It is a lot less popular here in Idaho than it was in Ohio. One thing I miss since I have moved is Genesee Cream Ale. Haven't seen it once since I moved from Ohio!

    When I flew to visit a friend in California, I used to take a case of Genny Cream as my 2nd checked bag. It wouldn't be worth the bag fees these days.

    I appreciate it! My first beer ever was a genny cream ale. Stole it from dads cooler and drank it with the neighbor boy in the tree house. Hooked ever since lol. We have Black Star out here. Little more hoppy but similar.
