Frequently Asked Questions
Everything you always wanted to know about Waste Oil* but were afraid to ask
Waste Oil [WO] Heating:
With Waste Oil burning & heat applications: if you do not like getting your hands dirty every week or two weeks, with waste oil as a fuel source, then heating with waste oil is probably not for you! If you have plenty of spare money, go for LPG. The flip side is get your hands dirty once a week & you will have low heating bills with WO.
Otherwise, if you are a person who does not have access to natural gas, then the only heating solution that does not cost a small fortune, is waste oil.
‘Peter’ has a 300 sqm house in country Victoria. Peter’s WO consumption this winter was 5000 litres. The 5000 litres cost Peter nothing as he has a timber company with plenty of WO available. If Peter had used the equivalent amount of fuel energy using LPG, the LPG alone would cost around 5000 * $1.30 = $6,500 plus the rental on Peter’s LPG tank of about $500 pa. That is $7,000 pa.
As the Americans say, go figure.
