Sorry for the double post. I've been having DSL line problems here in rural NH. I can't find a way to delete it.
I've been reading about the SS not holding up and I have a double wall one I installed a few years ago so I've been taking some oil from my trucks oil change and burnt that a few times in a pan stuff with oil and rags in the Harman. It left a hell of a oil like coating to the inside of it so I hope this help slow down the acid burn over the summer. When I restarted the stove this fall I got a good hot wood fire going to burn off the soot/oil film. I checked the outside Tee clean out and it looks good up as far as I can see. If and when I do have a problem I will convert to a Mason chimney.
Olympia Chimney uses 316 ti . They lifetime warranty it for life with coal . If lining a chimney for coal use I would suggest insulating it before installing it. Most calls I hear from people with low draft problems have a lined chimney with no insulation on an outside wall . Usually burning the fire hotter helps .
