Keep me posted about the coal! I am new to burning it this year and have about a half a ton right now. If it burns well in my wood/coal add on furnace will likely buy a lot more in future years. Don;t want to buy a bunch at this point until I know if its feasible to do it with the furnace that I have. I am just south of Toledo.
I will Jim, I am confident by the end of next summer, I will have enough interest to get a truckload into SE Michigan. By the end of this winter I will also know how much coal I am actually going to need. I am going to try to go the entire winter without my LP forced air furnace even turning on unless I am away for more than a couple of days where the stokers will have run out. I figure it will be between 3 tons at the low side and maybe 5 at the high side to get all the way from Oct through April/May or whenever it warms up enough to shut them down.
