    FWIW I opened this thread to read with interest because I too have noticed a "glut" of pellets on the market and prices are definitely falling.

    If it keeps going down I will have a discussion with my landlord about storage....maybe buy a truckload of something and stick them in one of his spare garage spaces.

    Jay, try to ignore those negative posts understanding the vast majority of us appreciate your efforts. I haven't seen this kind of comparison done anywhere else. In my opinion the fuels compared to each other should have "similar" results for everyone as long as everything else (stove brand, where you live, elevation, OAK, etc. etc.) remains consistent. While individual results may vary as compared to yours, comparisons per person should be quite relative really, at least in an unscientific setting, and it's better information than we had before.
    Thanks for taking your time and effort to contribute.

    $6.25 is a bit pricey But the pres to logs are worth a try.

    Inferno's = Yuk! Hey if you don't mind being cold and got a super duper ash vac. Heck give them a try. I am sure we will have one more member ranting there superior awfulness.

    If that's a good price for you, you'd be better off doing a day rent on a U-Haul and buy your buddies the beers. That way you get them stacked the way you want. Trucks here are $20/day + mileage. Did a delivery for a friend of a dining set and couch from a high end furniture store in one. My truck was not available. Hated driving the POC, but it was two hours door to door.

    Please note that that $69 is for as much as you buy of anything at one shot, so if you buy 5 tons, they cost you under $14/ton for delivery, and you don't have to touch or lift anything until you decide to stack them in your basement, etc.

    With the "buy more, save more" deal, if you buy 5 tons, you'd get pellets at $209/ton + $14 = $223/ton DELIVERED to your door.

    I just posted a review of the Pres-to-logs that HD has on sale, and I'd do that deal in a heartbeat if I needed pellets right now.

    Where's the review, I think there are a few who may be interested in YOUR opinion, too.

    For me, planning on burning more wood this year (new stove) and onlly use the pellets when it is really cold or at night, so I only need a ton....or maybe two this year. Unless of course oil spikes but right now it is not worth it to me at these prices.

    Fireinnthehole, sorry it took so long to reply, but I just bought another ton of somersets at menards for the same price of $213.50 plus 4% sales tax which comes to $222.04. Must be wood pellets are in the same class as electricity in Michigan.

    Yet another addition as to why I left a state that should be doing much better than it currently is...When is Granholm going back to Canada, eh?

    Hot_h20, this is her last year, thank God! Look out Canada, she's probably coming home to you. Hold on to your wallet, and your property, she wants it all.
