  • I just sent OPEC packing,you can to!!!

    Thought that would get your attention,I just bought a AG solutions B-150 Residental Waste oil Boiler,yes RESIDENTAL.This unit will heat 7500 SQ feet.It will run on #1-6 fuels ,Diesel,ATF,Hydraulic fluid,Used motor oil(up to 15-50),and most importantly WVO.All this for less then it would have cost me to heat my Home this winterBecome a guru of green(tell tony to thank the boys in NH)......grease out

(Wood furnace.....X.......solar pontoon....solarsheat twins this summer.....I don't Know much.......I'm just a hillbilly with too many guns..............

    The guy I'm buying my oil from is doing this.

    So, the burner was cheap... that cool. How much oil is it going to burn compared to a natural gas furnace? Cost wise...

    I'm buying my oil for $2/gal so cost is an issue.

      To compare apples to apples,it is as efficient as a new oil boiler(home heating oil)Don't forget it burns everything else under the sun,ATF,Used motor oil ,Hydraulic oil,and anything else this side of antifreeze.This all said averaged in this would drop your oil price.Contact small garages,and tranny shops thats what I did.P.s not only do you not filter it as much,its a good place to dispose of stuff that would normally end up at the dump....grease out

        Thanks for the info.

        Sounds like something I should look into further. If I can get the heater cheap... no reason I couldn't heat the shop with it.

                I like the "Heating the shop idea" do you have a ball park price? I sent an email to Ag Solutions for a quote.

                  Ballpark $5000-$5500,I don't know your exact,due to the fact in NH there is no sales tax.This and a variable of shipping.That is for the B-150(150,000 BTU) Boiler this unit will heat roughly 7500 square feet.It also has a domestic water coil,I'm gonna heat our home,home office,and in the future my driveway,and hot tub,This company also offers Forced hot air heaters,tell anthony he owes the boys in NH a thank you,P.s. this obviously doesn't include install,,,,,,grease out

                    5500 bucks....

                    That a huge price for a heater that only heats 7500'. My shop is 1800' and has a 15' ceiling...i would need 3 of those! My house is also 1800'
                    More practical IMO is a wood pellet stove. I heat my entire house with one 24/7 and i paid 2500 for the stove. Its automatic so just set the dial to what size fire you want - 1 thru 6 on the dial and go to bed. I turn it all the way down to 1 when i leave for work and when i get home its usually still above 68* in the house and then i turn it up to 2 or 3 and get it back up to 73* in no time.
                    Pellets cost me 400 dollars last year for 2 tons and that lasted me the entire season...6 months basically so about 65 bucks a month for heat.

                    So i am cheating opec also...thinking about making a wood burning stove for the shop as well.

                      deductive reasoning

                      For myself i live in a home with forced hot water heat,this coupled with a estimate of $5000.00 to heat this home for the coming winter,made the deal.I too am a advicate of wood heat,I have a small Pacific Energy Airtight.Unforunately I have a back disability that doesn't let me go the wood pellet route(Rolled a straight axle truck a few times,great time).With my source of cheap WVO,and only filtering to 150 microns ,this was my best none back laborious route.I did the math and for me I look at what I will save in 20years,at that the 5500 bucks is a drop in the bucket(pun intended)P.s. THIS IS AN ALL AMERICAN BUILT AND MANUFACTURED UNIT,some things you can't put a price on.....grease out

                            Sweet! I gotta check them out. My house and shop each have sub-floor radiant heat. I REALLY want to use WMO to heat the water, problem is I only need about 55k btu's heating BOTH spaces, most of the time I need only 1/2 of that. The boiler companys I talked to said if I got a boiler that was way overrated for my demands, it would cause problems for the boiler. The other issue is I only need 110* or so water - hotter is not better. Now I'm using a propane domestic water heater dedicated to this system (we have a propane tankless WH for house) and last couple years I bought about 350 gals of propane.

                            My neighbor across the feild has a trucking company. They change oil in 3-4OTR truck's each weeks - 10 gals/truck. They will also deliver it to me.
