howdy, can anyone tell me the difference between red dyed and white. none of the home heating oil vendors in my area deliver the white. i haven't had any problems yet but some folks i know say the red won't work in the kerosun or other wick type heaters. is there a easy fix with the wicks or do i have to haul the white in from a convenience store 5 miles down the road. thanks in advance, greg

It has been my experience that in kersone heater either red or clear deisel makes a smokey mess. I took a heater that someone gave away because it smoked really bad and they did not want the useless thing. When I tried to light it I noticed it had deisel in it. I emptied the tank and cleaned the wick and put kersone in it it worked fine. I was in a hurry one time and put deisel in a torpedo type space heater one time never again will I do that.

The red is 'non-taxable diesel'...That said...There is absolutely no problem with using it in anything that calls for 'kerosene'...

I have a 275 gallon tank and I fill it in August every year...I use it in my Monitor 'kerosene' heater and pump out what I need for my Aladdin wick heaters and my kero lamps and lanterns...

The only thing I have ever found with the red stuff is that the wick may (not always depending on item) need more frequent cleaning...

LMAO...Henry (the delivery guy) just pulled in...

I haven't bought K-1 since early spring, but then it was $1.799. Seems all petroleum products have begun jumping again for last few weeks, I saw regular gas jump 10 cents in a day earlier this week.

Can't remember the last time I bought K-1. But I will tell you that gasoline jumped from around a buck sixty to a buck seventy-five, just today alone!

i guess they figure it's going to be a long wet winter and they might just as well start soaking us starting now. greg

Do any of you ever add any thing in your kerosene to help keep out the moisture like StaBil? We heat with wood and corn and have a forced air furnace that runs on natural gas, which I hate to use.$$$$ But we also have a couple of kerosene heaters we can pull out and use if need be, I was just wondering about storing it and if any additives need to added to it. Thanks!

I have literally pulled kero lamps out of attics that have 100 years of dust on them...They are still half full and light right up and burn well (other than the dust fires)...


PS....Dunno what that might do to a modern wick heater (or a diesel engine), but my Aladdins wouldn't even blink at burning 50 year old kero...
