In the early years of my body work career (1975) or so ,,I heated my garage at home with fuel oil ,,not a very pleasant
odor ,,,but it got me by
Now ,,in the winter at my house ,my wife & I spend time out in the garage with the door open ,throwing the tennis ball for my dogs ,,I have a large heater that we have on when its very cold ,,I have been running it on clear kerosene from the gas station..I use a 55 gallon drum to store it , with a convenient hand crank pump to dispense it .
The problem was ,it was inconvenient to fill the barrel ,with the 2 foot long hose on the pump.
So I called my offroad supplier ,& had them deliver 170 gallons of kerosene..
I chose the non taxed fuel ,because I use it in the heater .
They told me ,,it was un taxed kero,,the same as I was using (that didn't stink) ,only it was dyed ,,& that makes it # 1 fuel oil.I already have 350 gallons of off road for my equipment & could have used that for the heater ,But I was concerned it would stink..
The fuel they delivered ,does not smell the same as the un-dyed that I have been getting at the pump for the last 4 years ,,
I would like to know why ...
BTW ,,all I use in the truck ,is the proper taxed fuel...
