Hey guys...

Have any of you tried using W85 in an oil fired furnace? My garage is 18 by 28 and gets quite cold.. I was thinking of buying a used oil furnace and trying out W85 in it..

That would allow me to spend a lot more time in the garage, during winter!

Or if you don't already have a furnace you could look into a waste oil furnace. I have a buddy that runs one in his shop and it works real well.

They are all over the place around here. It is hard to find WMO because so many garages and service stations burn it in the winter. You will not need gas in it to work in a furnace.

Thanks guys...

My idea, is to try and find a used residential oil furnace and make it work in my garage... A waste oil furnace is a bit out of my price range.

I have an old drip-feed furnace in there already, but it doesn't give off nearly enough heat.

So is anyone actually running WMO or w'85 in their furnace? I would assume it would run fine in a waste oil furnace but what about a regular oil furnace. Any one running WMO in one of those??
