    -5 last night woke up this morning to a house that was 80 degrees. Burnt 40 lbs of rice coal in a 12 hour period.

    Excellent! I was following your travails on NEPA, and from the sound of things, it worked out. So what was the official diagnosis (theirs, and yours)?

    i felt it was a feed problem. The tech bench tested the feed motor and found it was defective..It was getting hot then shutting off.

    Excellent. I had been wondering if you were ever going to see a resolution to this problem. You must be one happy camper. But 80 degrees, whew. I'm down to a tee shirt when the house hits 70.

    I was just wondering today if you ever got that fixed, glad to hear you did.
    So about 80lbs a day for the cold weather, that would be 9 bucks a day for me. Less than 1/2 of what oil cost.
    Is it doing the whole house now? Maybe you can move it back to the basement now.

    For me that's just under 5 bucks a day.. Currently getting rice coal for 120 a ton.. Wife says the stove stays on the first floor..She likes coming in from the outside and standing in front of the stove to get warm quickly.
    Your right about the pups doing fine at 50 degrees but i'm not about to disagree with the misses...lol And yes the stove is heating the whole house. It's my only source of heat
