I will reach the 8,000 lbs. burned mark tomorrow. 44.2 lbs. burned per day is my current overall average.

16 lbs a day now. You all have me wondering what I really burn. I always have coal left over buying 7500 lbs a year. Luckily a guy that works for me is soon to be burning, as he has been getting burned by the propane guy :x It kills me when he comes in and tells me his fillup costs every 2 months or less, and they are still cold. I will be supplying him with my leftovers until he gets a handle on real consumption. He will be helping my co-op with my friends, volume discounts only help us all.

I usually burn 2.5 -3 tons. I installed siding and with the warm weather I only burned 1.5 tons.

5.5 tons so far from mid sept till now. Cooking at an average 72-74 in a 2400 sqft brick ranch. Less than .5 gal of fuel oil used. Last year with buying wood and fuel oil i spent from February to April is the same as I spent from sept till now and my house was averaging 66-68. Not down grading burning wood by any means, I hated having to get up every 2-4 hours and go to the basement and throw wood on the fire. Especially at night.

As of today, 2.5 tons of nut (stopped burning that 2 weeks ago), and approximately 12 bags of pea. I picked up 1/2 ton of pea last weekend and haven't touched it yet. Before that I was buying between 3—6 bags of pea a week.

A plastic 5 gallon pail probably holds nearly 5.5 gallons to the very top. Just like a typical 55 gallon drum will hold 57 to 58 gallons to the very top.

Santa only weighs 40#? ;)
A 5 gallon pail is not always so?
If you are warm and have enough coal in the bin, it don't matter how much...
Just how little coal you have burned... :lol:
Always have more coal than you need for the next season... :idea:
