Yes, you can do it, Kerosene is nothing but a higher grade home heating oil. Your furnace technician does, however, have to make some minor adjustments to your furnace burner jets. . no one available to adjust can it be used fo a short time or what could happen
Can home heating oil be substituted for kerosene in a kerosene heater if your furnace isn't working?
No way hosea! Is it possible if you have the right setup. It all depends on what type of furnace you are using Not without causing further problems - in mobile home furnaces especially. Using heating oil in a smaller system can result in clogged nozzles and filters causing the system to malfuntion… or even worse OVERHEAT causing fire danger. Also straight kerosene won't gel in colder temperatures like heating oil will (MORE)

Kerosene and home heating oil can be mixed in a oil furnace.Kerosene is thinner than heating oil. Mixed together will make thefurnace burn cleaner.
It is not kerosene but a kerosene type fuel used in jets or aircraft. Jet fuel is a mixture of various hydrocarbons. Jet fuel must be free from water contamination. Synthetic Jet fuel and Jet biofuels are used in different airways. Chemically they are not exactly same as kerosene or petrol.
Musk oil these days is a synthetic, so it has been moved from the list of commonly used magical oils. It will depend on the spell you are using it in. Check your source books and make a substitution based on the outcome you are looking for. If however you are looking for a substitution for musk …oil as a fragrance oil, then let your nose and your personal preferences guide you. (MORE)
You can use hydrogen instead as long as it was teste so you couldn't blow up your car after. Also, you could use water as it's an endless resource because it's all around us and it can be used to very good use. You could use eletric but oil is used for more stuff than we think like oil can be used i…n vasoline and to make kerosene (fuel for jets/airplanes) so it would be very hard to replace it unless we don't save fossil fuels and we need to start to develop new ways to use alternative use to fuel.

Yes, you can. But have to heat it up to 60C or make biodesel(cook cooking oil for 1 to 4 hours in 60C).
A diesel engine will run fine on kerosene. If you are going to run it on kerosene for an extended amount of time you might want to put some lubricant additive in with it. Winter diesel is various blends of diesel and kerosene.In the UK you may wish to think about the tax implications,road fuel carri…es a higher duty and using kerosene(domestic heating oil) in a vehicle would be tax evasion.

Can you mix kerosene with home heating oil without harm to furnace or contaminating home heating oil?
Yes, in cold climates, kerosene is mixed at 10-20% with #2 FO to prevent gelling.
Can you mix kerosene with home heating oil without damage to furnace or contaminating home heating oil?
Yes you can; According to "FlashOffRoad" "Kerosene is routinely added to home heating oil, in large quantities. The furnace doesn't know, or care. The furnace oil pump does not have the same clearances (they are more crude, greater clearances, lower pressure...) and the kerosene won't hurt them. …Most will (and often do) run on straight kerosene--here in NH, if the oil tank is outside, the mix will be either 50/50 or straight kerosene. Kerosene doesn't have the same heat values either, you won't get the same amount of power from a gallon of kerosene as from heating oil, or diesel fuel." See full article for more detail . Personally though, I wouldn't add more than 10 gallons per 275 tank full just to be safe. (MORE)
Kerosene appears blue because it is used to store sodium. Since sodium is a very reactive metal, it is stored by immersing it in kerosene and hence imparts blue colour to kerosene.
I just had a service technician clean my burner in preparation for the winter. I showed him a product I had purchased at Home Depot called Hercules fuel oil sludge treat. It comes in a one quart container and you put a pint in for a 275 gallon tank just before a delivery. The technician said you wou…ld be better off adding one gallon of kerosene prior to the delivery. The kerosene burns hotter and is a higher grade of fuel than home heating oil. He said it would probably do a better job than the sludge treatment product and costs less. (MORE)
i have heard that you can use apple sauce. but i dont know how much in relation to the oil When using applesauce as a sub, I use the amount called for plus 1/4 cup. You can also use butter or margarine (melted)
If your kerosene heater has a wicker which will carry the fuel additive (kerosene or oil) up towards the flame then you may put oil. However, if the heater works on hydrocaron compression-combustion priciple, then oil may not work as a fuel additive
It is cleaner burning and can be pipe in from long distances. Has a continues supply unlike coal or oil that has to be trucked in and stored on site.
u can use diesel fuel but why would you?. heating oil has no tax and is so much cheaper than road fuel
yes you can as a temporary solution but MAKE SURE you don't accidentally use gasoline or you'll be sorry
butter, but it will make whatever you're cooking have a thicker/richer taste, which is good in some cases, bad in others, depending on what it is you're making. it doesnt have to be REAL butter, it can be the butters that aren't really butters "i can't believe its not butter" or "country crock" or w…hatever else. (MORE)
Instead of using oil you can use butter this works just as well as oil sometimes even better .One bad thing is butter can be worse for your health then oil .Also there are oil sustitutes made out there.
depends on the hydrogen peroxide. if the hydrogen peroxide is likethe one found in the medical section or in the cabnet of themedical stuff, nothing will likely happen. I didn't try it my selfso if you want to find out, experiment. But what i do know is thatif it's consentraited and comes in contact… with platnium or silver,the hydrogen peroxide will start expelling hot gases that arehypergolic with kerosene. (hypergolic is a rocketry term meaningthat combining two or more substances will ignit it withoutignition source) But, you can just mix them together and will makea rocket fuel. (MORE)
That would really depend on the type of food you are preparing. You can use butter instead of oil to prepare certain foods such as grilled cheese, eggs, pancakes, etc.
When a microscope is used with a very high magnification objective the image can be spoiled by the number of refractions as light goes from one medium to another (glass to air, for example). In order to help this a drop of special oil is placed on the slide cover slip and the bottom of the objective… lens dips into the oil. The oil has the same refractive index as the glass used in cover slips and the bottom lens in the objective so there is no refraction as the light passes from glass to oil and back to glass. The objective is designed to give the best image with the oil. The refractive index of water is not the same as that of the oil, so the correction would not be right and the objective would not give the best possible image. I would also be a little wary of using water in case it damages the objective. It may be oil-proof, but that doesn't guarantee it is waterproof.this will lead to poor focusing. (MORE)
It depends what you are making. If you are sauteeing vegetables like onions and garlic or whatever, you could try using a little veg or chicken broth if you don't want to use any kind of fat. Maybe it would work for foods other than vegetables, but I haven't tried it. If you can use fat, coconut oil… (which is hard until you warm it and which doesn't taste like coconut) is a nice change from vegetable oils. In baked goods or pancakes, oil can often simply be omitted. If you omit oil or fat from a cake recipe, for example, you need to replace it with something to make up for the liquid; applesauce is one possible choice. (MORE)
It burns cleaner, doesn't have an offensive odor, and in most markets it is cheaper.
The kerosene is a lighter oil. I think you would get more BTUs out of the heating oil. Just make sure that you are using the right fuel for the furnace that you have. Most now days would take heating oil.
The only time you should place kerosene in a heating system is if it is designed for kerosene.
It is because it is cleaner in burning and does not give a lot of carbon dioxide.
Try melted butter. Or to reduce fat, some recipes for baked goods will work well using applesauce as a substitute for the oils.
Yes but it is also very detrimental to the ecosystem. It creates a film on the surface of the standing water which the larvae are laid and grow in.
If you are using it to fry meat or veggies, you may use either one but oil is better healthwise for your arteries. If you are making cakes, melt the lard before mixing into the batter. Lard is better to use for making cookies than oil. Oil will make a rather flat cookie.
i made this mistake on an hydraulic breaker pack,no damage was caused to the pump or breaker.however the operation of the equipment was sluggish until the machine really warmed up.presumably because the 46 oil is" thicker" than the iso 32
Of the three fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), gas releases least carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), so if fossil fuel has to be used, gas is the best. Gas is also cleaner burning, and easier to "transport" than coal or oil. Gas can be delivered in canisters or through a pipeline from the street. Cl…eaning and tuning of burners and furnaces is easier as well, plus there is no objectionable smells from normal use. Oil and coal both produce soot and ash, and require a regular service delivery, and more frequent maintenance. (MORE)
Basically it's cheaper. Coal was used but mining has gotten more expensive over the years also it gives off a lot of pollutants when burned, much more than natural gas, and so is banned for use in coal fires in most urban areas due to the high risk of smog.
It depends upon the brand or model of heater. As a general rule, most salamanders or heaters can use either. You just have to try it and see. If it doesn't work and smokes a lot, you drain it out and resort to kerosene again.
Since Kerosene and oil are two different substances I would think not. I would NOT try experimenting though if you don't know what you are doing.
peanut oil (sometimes called groundnut oil) is a close substitute. Failing that, any other nut oil. Failing that, any plain oil. (such as sunflower).
Kerosene should not be used as a home heating oil unless the unit is designed to do just that, kerosene may be used in a small amount to inhibit gelling of fuel oil during extremely cold weather.
Residential heating oil is an extremely simple and affordable option to keep your home warm in the winter months. Fuel oil distributors have made it easy for homeowners to schedule round-the-clock residential fuel oil and schedule deliveries and even request an emergency oil delivery if necessary. …The company I depend on for heating oil in Long Island offers these services online, 24/7.

Kerosene and heating oil are not the same. Make sure you use clear kerosene if you aren't venting out of a chimney - for example a space heater. Regular kerosene has a red dye that can be toxic
Specific gravity is the ratio of density of material to the density of water, so when we use Kerosin instead of water then the value will be multiplied by the specific gravity of kerosin to get the actual specific gravity.
It would be fine for a very long time, but eventually it may wear more than with a gear oil. Gear oil uses an additive that causes it to "stick" to the gears better than an engine oil so the gears that make contact above the the oil level will receive oil pulled up by a gear that does contact the oi…l bath. The biggest lubrication issue in designing a transmission/gearbox is ensuring that the bearings above the oil bath receive adequit oil. There lies the biggest issue with using a motor oil in a gearbox. With gear oil and a properly designed gearbox, the "sticky" oil will sling up to the higher shaft and stick to it, eventually flowing to the bearings. Motor oil will simply drip off the upper shaft before reaching the bearing. Sort of. The "weights" of the oils are not relative, for instance a 75-90 gear oil is about the same viscosity as a, say a 20w40 motor oil. However, gear oil rarely reaches the test point of 200 degrees that engine oil does so it is rated at 150 degrees. If a 30w engine oil was rated at 150f, it would rate about the same as a 90w gear oil. There are exceptions, for instance a 600 hp Caterpillar diesel engine with 2400 lbs. ft. of torque in a big Peterbuilt truck pulling 80,000 lbs. over a mountain pass in 100 degree weather, they will see transmission and rear end oil temps of 250 degrees. However, they use a heavier 140w synthetic gear oil. So, it is strongly recommended that a gear oil be used in a unit that requires oil to reach components that are above the oil level and there is no lubrication "system" in place, such as an oil pump, to deliver oil to the higher areas. Gear oil will stick to the lower components and carry the oil to the upper parts not bathed in the oil. (MORE)
Kerosene is not the only thing that will kill mosquitoes, but ithas been shown to be effective. On the downside, it carries with ithealth and fire risks.
if you have a basement you can employ a gravity fed day tank with outdoor oil tank or an indoor storage tank. oil pumps typically have a relief valve that sends oil not needed by the orifice back to the storage tank. in many climates this is sufficient to keep the oil warm enough to flow ke…rosine added to oil will make the oil flow on colder days kerosine is more expensive than any heating oil an indoor oil storage tank or a smaller indoor reserve tank (day tank) is more common in the colder climates. so the benefit is a short term patch or crutch or bandage to a heating system improperly designed for the climate. coal is cheaper than oil and harder to pump but is often used in the coldest climates (energy density * fuel cost) + cost of fuel handling equipment = energy cost over long term fuel handling is lowest factor sawmills are powered by sawdust (MORE)
You will have excess engine wear. Look at it this way. The engineers designed the engine in your car. They then chose a weight of oil that you should use. You decide to ignore them and use something else. What exactly do you think will happen? And besides, what good reason do you have for using a we…ight of oil other than what they recommend? But, it is your car so use what you want, just don't expect good results. (MORE)
If 5w30 is the recommended oil and you use 10w30 your engine will suffer excess wear over time. Why in the world would you want to use another weight of oil than what the manufacture recommends? Use exactly what the manufacture and designer of your engine tells you to use and nothing else.
No, the petrol has a higher ignition flash point than that of kerosene. It would be like using petrol in a diesel engine. The engine would run extremely hot and the engine could be destroyed. As diesel uses compression to burn the fuel petrol needs a spark. The petrol under higher compression will p…re ignite and cause detonation in the piston cylinders. This could destroy the pistons, cylinder walls or the cylinder head of the engine. (MORE)
Yes and no. An unmodified oil burner will burn far more kerosene than fuel oil for which it is designed. If you replace the nozzle with a smaller nozzle and adjust the air, using an orsatz [orsat gas analyzer], a device for determining the combustion efficiency of the flame, you will be able to use… kerosene. * interesting fact: Kerosene is also known as #1 fuel oil, or JP5 jet fuel. Mixing kerosene with #2 fuel oil, (home heating oil) in small amounts, should have no appreciable effect on the furnace efficiency. (MORE)
Maybe. You should consult the manufacturer of your device foradvice. It's probably going to be significantly more expensive, though.
