Biofuel for Home Heating
LESLIE: Peter in New Jersey has a question about home heating. What can we help you with?
PETER: Hi. Well, I’ve heard about biodiesel for your cars and trucks, like the French fry oil or soybean oil, and I was wondering was there any type of biofuel for your home heating oil?
TOM: Not yet; although, you know, the soybean oil, there have been a number of research projects where they’ve tried using soybean oils in your typical oil-fired heating system gun kind of a thing and it does work. They have to change the size of the actual burner and the orifice that lets the oil out, but it’s not developed to the point where it’s readily available. But I’d love to see something like that develop in the future. I love the idea of growing your own fuel.
PETER: Yeah, me too. Well, thank you very much.
TOM: You’re welcome, Peter. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
