On first approximation its listed properties appear to be fairly close (though not identical) to Drakeol® 7 White Mineral Oil. That might (???) qualify as an alternative.

WARNING: The aspiration of any oil mist into the lungs can be fatal. Be very careful to properly protect yourself and those around you when spraying it.

I still am pleased with my Peanut oil. I will let everyone know how the stove looks inside after spring cleanup if that ever happens :x Will this cool weather ever leave :?:

I installed a garden hose next to my coal bin for a few dollars worth of plumbing supplies. I wet the coal down lightly before shovelling it or dumping it out my dump chute. Otherwise there is a dust cloud in the area because sitting inside, the coal becomes bone dry.

This was cheaper to me than buying oil.


I burn rice and do pretty much the same thing. With plumbing supplies I had laying around I installed a tap with a short hose right above the coal bin. Every day I wet the coal down....takes about a minute and keeps most of the dust down. The trick is to keep it wet after delivery. If left to dry out and you try to re-wet only the top will be damp and the coal will have to be mixed and re-watered....probably stirring up more dust. Been doing this for years without any rusting or moisture problems in stove. Virtually no cost.

Once coated I'm sure oil will do a better job than my water system but I'm cheap and like to keep things simple. I don't have any problems with excessive coal dust.

Yep, this is the stuff I'm looking for in a five gallon pail. As far as I know, it isn't available in five gallon pails.

Someone suggested getting a drum of used hydraulic oil. If I can't get that I'm getting the peanut oil from Lowes.

I'm planning on using an old sprinkler can to oil the coal in the tractor bucket before I dump it into my new gravity bin wagon. Oil mist won't be a problem.

The various Drake Oils (Drakeol®) are very commonly used in industry. That is why I tossed it out as a potential substitute.
