Now, that sounds like true wisdom. Thanks for taking the
time to write.
I knew one fellow who made up an oil drip. He set up a
bucket of oil on a high shelf, mixed with kerosene. Ran it
to a valve, and dripped into the fire box. He could run all
day on a couple piece of wood to get it going, and then burn
oil the rest of the day. A couple other folks had furnaces
"run away" and give them problems, so he quit.
As I remember, his pole barn was big enough to park six cars
in (though he didn't have that many, but it gives you a size
reference). In the cold winter, it was warm within a foot or
two of the stove. Carpet would have helped a lot, or wood
floor. But, he used it as a repair shop for cars, and so
that wasn't an option.
Another friend used to soak his wood in used motor oil, and
that would burn a bit longer. And a bit hotter. He actually
had an old oil furnace, and took the oil burner off. He'd
stoke the burner box with wood, and that would keep the
house warm. The next people put the oil burner back on. And
the people after that, PVC pipes were seen coming out of the
wall, so they must have put in a 90 percenter furnace.
