Yes absolutely, but it wouldn't work in my stove, so there's just no point. I was looking to see if I could extend the time my coal bed lasts. Normally I can get a nice 8-10 hours out of her between reloads.
I'm looking into a boiler this summer, probably a KA-6. I'll use it to heat my 3 zones of water based FHA heat. I'm officially tired of feeding my stove 3 times per day, and if oil is going to stay here at 3.5 to 4 per gallon, I'm going to have to change my primary fuel. My house burns 500 gallons of oil per month, 2000 gallons per year.
