    Went online Oct 2008. I've burned maybe 2-3 gallons of oil in the last three years, and that is only to exercise the backup oil half of the TARM. About once every 3 months or so I'll switch to oil backup for 15 minutes or so just to make it run. The oil is there only if I'm gone for an extended time, or I fall down the stairs and can't haul wood. So far so good. (knock on wood) I last bought a 100 gallons of oil (min purchase) back in 2009 and still have all of it.

    Its been about 3 years since I've used propane,my wood boiler takes care of both heating house and domestic water year round.
    In the winter I burn every other day in summer every 5 - 7 days.I love this storage system.
