When I was asking about pricing with my dealer he mentioned this. I thought he said it was a new tax?
I didn't like it, but didn't question it.
I didn't have to buy coal last year but I've never had to pay this before. :gee:
There is no Tax on coal in PA not yet anyway so I do not know what he was trying to sell you Maybe his Delivery Man was charging a fuel tax Like UPS FED X & DHL are doing

I got a delivery today from Superior, $167/ton for nut.

Hopefully this will burn better than the bag of Reading Coal nut my wife picked up yesterday for $8 for 40#! Running overnight in my Mark II with the draft open 2 full turns the fire still went out. I was only alseep for 6 hours, and came down to fight a basball sized area barely glowing. There was 20+ pieces of wood in the bag also, most bigger than a popcicle stick.
I added some more of it to the pea coal fire I've had going all day and after 40 minutes their just starting to glow. It's like it just doesn't want to burn.

As far as Strip Mined coal goes I have had OK results with Reading, very good results with Blaschak. I don't know where the coal I'm using now was mined, but it's strip and doesn't burn as long as Blaschak, I have had the same problem, and it takes a long time to get the fire back up. I've paid $6.25 for Reading 40 lb. bag in NJ.

I'm looking forward to my trip to NEPA to get some real deep-mined coal.

I made the trip today, $585 for 5320#, $220 a ton. I love going there, its like a time capsule. He has 4 silos, each holds up to 250 tons. There is a big hole in the ground, the coal is dumped in there and a chain and bucket conveyor lifts it into the silo. You park under a chute and he holds a board across the flow of coal, it tumbles across a large mesh screen to take out the flake, chips and dust. He has got some old rusting contraptions scattered everywhere there. Here is a shot of my haul in Big Red.

Looks like you have it down to a science! I love the "Heat With Coal" lettering. Sure sounds like an interesting place.

I've been having dismal results with the coal I'm currently using, and I was down to 2 boards on the bin (8" boards across the front), so I made a coal run today as well. I found a coal yard in Stroudsburg that'
s been there for years, drove right by it many times and didn't even know it was there. I spoke to them about the quality of the coal before I bought any. Picked up 1/2 ton bagged 1/2 pea, 1/2 nut-50 lb. bags @ $6.00 ea. A ton picked up is $168.00, delivered to my house $183.00.

They sell all sizes, and coal is the only thing they sell.

Ran it down all down the chute into the bin, emptied the stove (which was out yet again), fired it up. So far so good.

This will keep the fire going 'till I can get out to coal country, I hope.

I picked up a ton of bagged blashack on Nov 9th. Pea or nut was the same price 255 a ton. Its only about 7 minutes from my house to pick it up. I'm good for the season now. I use about 3 tons for the season.

Ray, that's up $5.00 since October, I picked up a ton of Rice there (Bristol) myself then.

Pictured, 3/4 ton of pea - $94.00. $125.00/ton.

As I was unloading it, I thought it looked pretty good ... better than what I've been burning.

I also picked up a ton in Bristol for 245, but that was in the end of August. They sell a lot of coal. they have a tuff time keeping it in stock.

I also picked up a ton of bagged Pea from a private party in Farmington for 150. They had a Franco Belge they sold because they said it made the house (TO HOT) :lol: I don't think they knew how to adjust it, and they already sold the stove. I always check the local papers for deals on coal. I'm always happy to take it off their hands for a nice price. I can burn Pea, Nut, or Stove coal so I have a few options.

Locally you can just about get it fro free if it's loose in a basement. I had one customer who switched to gas a few years ago and had few tons left in his basement and I couldn't find anyone that was interested in taking it off his hands.

I'll always ask if its loose or in bags. If its bagged I can take it. If its loose I have no way to transport it, so I have to stick with bagged coal. I can usually get 1/2 ton at a time in my vehicle, so two trips with a hand truck is okay for me.
