RE: [DMCForum] Kerosene

Kerosene is sold here through regular gas pumps at gas stations, though only
in rural areas.  They are usually off to the side so people don't mistaken
them for gasoline.

I am not sure about the stability over time but would guess you could mix
fresh stuff with the older and still burn it.

So I settled on a portable Kerosene convection heater for my garage,
which will get me by until I buy some property and build a nice shop
in the next few years. I had some questions, though, and am hoping
someone here might know enough to answer them.

1. How long does Kerosene stay usable? I read information saying it
would keep for years, but I had a little leftover in my forced air
heater from last year and it did NOT burn well. Stunk up the place
real bad. I put new Kerosene in and that solved it. Was this a problem
with the way I stored it (small quantity, a gallon or two in the
bottom of the tank), or just a general problem with storing Kerosene?

2. Where might I look to buy Kerosene for a reasonable price? I only
use ~10 gallons a season since I only heat the garage when I'm using
it for more than a few minutes. My problem is the only place I know to
buy the stuff is in 5 gallon jugs at Home Depot and/or Lowes. It's $6
a gallon! Seems ridiculously expensive to me.
