Sorry didn't mean I was using lamps for heat. Being they put off heat, winter is when I would plan to use them. Too hot in summer to add any heat load as it is. Plus more sune to keep batteries charged up.Go to the nearest airport that sells "JETA" fuel.
NOT AvGas, JET A.
It is kerosene. Ask for the stuff they drain from their filters Might have to run it through a coffee filter, but hey....
The best alternative, by far - even in winter. I would use wood for heat - and lamp oil ONLY if it's the only source of fuel left.
Hope that is clear as mud now..
