Hi,
Recently extended the shed, used 70mmm aerated concrete blocks to make
inner walls and floor heating. Now experimenting with Mother Earth's
Waste Oil Heater. Made it from old 12 kg propane bottles. Google for
the plans. Works fine with wood and lamp oil, but not - yet - on
discarded frying oil as planned. It does not seem to get hot enough to
ignite.
Best regards, Dirk
