    70, between two stoves. Averaging just over 1.7 / day for Dec, just a hair over my estimate but it's been a cold December.

    Started last week of October, 1.5 ton burned out of 6 tons this season. Using 1.4 - 1.7 bags at the moment due to the cold air that's hit here in Maine, and here I was hoping for winter to stay on track and not get too cold, ha, mother nature eh ? Just need winter to do what last summer did, 'speed on by' and not get issued a speeding ticket.

    I did not keep track last season on the amount I burned as it was my first season, but at a guess I would say about 4 tons.

    All together this season, probably 40 bags. Now that I have decided to stick with Hamer's I will pick a ton up next week. And I second that comment about it beating oil heat any day! My oil furnace hasn't been used at all this season.
