    How many tons of pellets do you have stored up so far for this coming cold season? Here in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan we have to scrounge a bit for a ton and hopefully by the end of this month we'll have at least 2 tons in the garage.

    How's your tonnage?

    I've got 3 1/2 tons consisting of 3 tons of Cleanfire
    and a half ton of the New England Wood Pellet.
    Also a half tank of oil as a backup just in case.

    3 tons of Barefoot here and a full tank of fuel oil. Water heater is electric. We're only heating half of the house with the pellet stove and the other half with oil. I can't wait to see how much we're going to save this year!

    2 tons here so far and should be picking up another ton this week. I am going to sit there for now unless I get a good deal on a 4th ton. This is our first year using primarily pellets for heating so I am not sure what to expect. I do have about 3 cords of wood and will be burning that some also.

    My storage area on the back of my house has a space alloted in it that will hold 4 ton snuggly and 3 ton easily. I am hoping that 3 will get me through most of the season but only time will tell. This sounds sick but I can't wait for cold weather to get here!

    6 tons stashed in the shed. I went a little overboard. Better too much than not enough. I bought in June/July and paid on average about $235/ ton. Also got 500 gallons of hho in the tank left from last year. I'm ready to rumble!!!!!

    2 tons of Fire Side Premium Ultras but my stove will not be installed until 1/6/09. I also have a few bags of the Pennington's to see how they burn. Heating the house by forced hot air gas so savings will not be as great as if I used oil but there should be a little!

    4 tons to be delivered this week from Northeast Pellets, Llc of Ashland Maine. (Around $300/ton delivered)
    1/2 tank of oil for hot water and maaaaaby a little heat for basement.
    Will have another 100 gals of oil delivered soon. Currently $3.35/gal.

    3 tons of NEWP, 1 ton Lignetics hardwood, 1 ton Lignetics softwood, and 1 more ton of Lignetics coming this month or beginning of Nov., so I'll have 6 tons total. Hope I don't need it all, and can save some for next winter.

    Also have 500 Gal of VERY EXPENSIVE fuel oil in the tank that I hope I use VERY little of.

    Heating 2000 Sq. ft of a 2700 Sq. ft log home

    Haiti's??? The island nation in the Carribean? Don't need heat there LOL. I'm sure you mean Hades, where the dude with the pichfork lives with the fire and brimstone, of course no extra heat needed there either ;)

    Just kidding.
    5 tons New England, 5bags of Hamers to try and 7 cord of wood just in case

    4 tons of Cleanfire pellets stacked in garage. Minus the two bags I have used so far this year. I buy early from Pelletsales.com and they have always provided good service and OK prices.

    4 tons of greene team. I am happy with the way they are burning. I also bought a bag of Freedom Fuel from Home Depot. I don't like the way it burns and won't buy any more. I didn't realize until I started using it that it was pine.
