Default Waste oil furnaces

After my little fire fiasco I have decided to do away with the wood stove with the oil drip setup. I'm looking into a real waste oil furnace. Has anybody had any experience with these. and the pros and cons of different makes.

At one time Mother Earth News did an article on this and I think had plans for building one. I have been tempted to mix waste oil and diesel to use in my torpedo heater.

A friend of mine had the same experience as you, about ten years ago, with the wood/oil drip stove.

My dad has a waste oil burning stove for his shop. Works well when u have clean water free oil. But it's time consuming, you are always having to get oil and transfer it into your storage tank for the furnace. If it has any moisture in it it wont burn and has to be drained off and cleaned out.

I'm putting a pellet stove in mine hahahaha
