Hi everyone, I know that there are a few minor differences between home heating oil, diesel and k1, but my question is more specific than just if I can use them. I’ve had 20 gallons of k1 in my garage since 2008. It’s been kept in blue gas containers the whole time but the garage gets very cold in winter, and pretty hot in the summer. I’ve run out of oil before and have used diesel to get me by and as bad luck would have it, I’ve just done it again.
Here’s the deal. I had 5 gallons of diesel in the garage that I just poured in to get it running for the night. I’m buying oil now, but it won’t be delivered till wednesday, maybe Tuesday.
- Is that k1 still good to burn? I didn’t put any stabilizer in it or anything.
- Is it ok to add to the diesel I just put in?
My house was built in 1925 and the furnace is the old “snowman” type. Don’t know if that makes any difference.
Thanks in a chance for any help!
