Thread: Fuel Oil

  1. #1

    Default Fuel Oil

    I am looking at the Forest Service Cabins web site, thinking of a trip in the Southeast this summer.
    They list "No 1 fuel oil" for the stoves at some cabins, What is #1 fuel oil? Anything special?

    thanks in advance.

    #1 oil is simply heating oil which is just a more refined oil that is used in the winter so it does not gel, or its used for heating. It is a bit cheaper because there is no road tax.

    Thank you,
    Is it available in stores or any place to purchase it in Petersburg or Wrangell?

    Kerosene and #1 are interchangeable for use in stoves. At least in mine.
