We have oil hot water and just ran out. No way can we afford the minumum 150 gallons of heating oil at $4.16 a gallon right now. I was wondering if I can put kerosene or anything else in to get us by for a little while?

How much cheaper is kerosene than home heating oil in your area? Or is it that if you get an oil delivery, you have to get a minimum of 150 gallons? If that’s the case, why don’t you try to find a service station that sells Diesel for Off-Road use (meant to be used in Farm Tractors as well as heating systems)? This will be cheaper than the Diesel that is used for trucks and cars. Functionally equivalent, but taxed at a lower rate due to its being used for a different purpose. It might also be referred to as dyed-diesel.

I just took a roadtrip to Maine and saw several gas stations that sold both Highway and Off-Road diesel.
