I'm the guy who moved 120 miles and took his coal stove and two tons of coal with him. First project at new home- built coal bin. Second project- build hearth. Third project- intall chimney pipe. And it was July when I got here.

BUT I AM NOT A COALAHAULIC :!: :!:

Even though I've been warned at work for looking at this site on my iPhone, I still don't admit to a problem...

I can quit anytime I want and switch over to the oil boiler. (Once I put oil in the empty tank!!) :what:

Tom,

just curious - How long has your oil tank been empty? I made the official "call" to my oil company a month ago and told them "no more deliveries". I have no plans to have it filled again anytime in the immediate future. It was quite exhilerating to feel released from having to have my oil tank filled!

Heck, my oil company called me telling me they aren't going to deliver me oil unless I call them. I wasn't using enough... And that was before my Glenwood!

I was on automatic delivery. I had to call them or they would have come out on their own and filled the tank. Heaven forbid!!! I would have owed them another bill! I just paid off my budget for them - it was almost 200.00 a month and I was paying up until September just to get my balance down to zero.

I fired my oil company two years ago after they blatently ripped me off. I had to padlock my tank cap to keep them out! I refused to pay for the last load they dropped. The tank went to zero last winter when the old AA had a mid winter cold (cough... cough...). My gearbox went bad and it took a couple days to get my hands on a used one. So, jugs in hand, made the trip to the gas stop and bought some kero to get me through. I figure on doing that until the price of oil drops back to $1.50 again! :yearight:

The oil dealer stopped sending me calenders a few years ago, but I miss the newsletter. I still use the nifty letter opener they send me, though.
They are nice people, especially the guy who drives the oil truck. They used to sell coal back in the day.
