Un friggin real! It's like 2.90 ish right now, and I'm thinking maybe I should fill up before they jack up the price for winter. I have either a 275 or 550 gallon capacity in my house. We have two tanks, one is labelled 275 gallons, not sure if it means total or per tank. That's like $1600 in fuel oil if it's the big tank! Even if it's not, it's still like $800 to fill up! I'm seriously considering the used vegetable oil fuel, just reallllly hoping it doesn't puff-back. I hate the smell of french fries... I'm thinking maybe a 50/50 mix (if I collect it from local grease joints and refine it myself, it'll save me half my oil costs). Kinda sucks that I'll have to do all that extra work or pay all that extra money for the same level of heat we had last winter. A little crazy of a jump, a little faster than inflation I'd say. I'm also thinking harder about a home equity loan and rushing on a new roof and windows all around. Good to think about actually letting less heat out... Anyone using one of those big outdoor furnaces that get plumbed into the house? My dad was looking at them last year, but I can't remember anything about them to look up. You could burn trash, wood, etc, and it would heat an existing hot water or steam heat system. I still have our hulking asbestos-covered 1920's wood/coal furnace. Maybe I'll uncover it and reconnect it, and just burn up the trees I cut down in my yard... So what are everyone's heat-saving or home heating tips?
