[DMCForum] Re: Kerosene

Don't they just sell Kerosene at local gas stations around you? Buy a
gas can labeled for kerosene, and just use that for the heater.

I didn't even know Home Depot dabbled in selling Kerosene. And as with
ANY oil based product expect to bend over and take it on price for now
& forever. But it beats freezing in the garage.

I usually seem to run low or almost out on my Kerosene forced air tube
heater, so I just don't fill it up again when it runs out in the
spring. Next winter I just refill it, and am good to go. No problems
with burning the small residual amount left.
