Oiled coal would be a good idea for my set-up, but does anybody know if it would gum up my auger and pipe over a 9 foot pull from the bin?
How does it work in your own standard two-pipe, two-worm feed?

I'm no expert but I burned a ton of oiled coal and switched to very lightly watered coal. The oiled coal crunched more in the tube, and it made pockets around the auger. The dry/damp coal worked better but made much more dust in the bin. The oiled coal reduced almost all dust.
