ok ill check that one again

so really using this oil in my current bottom pooling furnance no good then since it will still have resin in the bottom no matter how hot it is. is that the fat that is left over that is the resin. like too bad didnt burn as clean as diesel fuel lol

ill have to try that coil style too as i want it to heat my home just i might need a different wood stove maybe.

is there much soot in the pipes do u need to clean them every so often or it burns hot enough no build up?

all info is good so far

Its not fat, its poly VO.

Less soot buildup than burning wood, and it burns cleaner with no smoke.

Sometimes but its not the same, thats oxidative poly instead of thermal poly. See the poly thread:

Bad, unless you like chimney fires or chimney sweeping.

Double wall stainless once it gets near a wall or ceiling, the rest of the way. Ask your local woodstove store so you do it right and don't burn down your shop (which I have seen too often.)
