What happens if you use kerosene instead of heating oil?
Kerosine and heating oil are the same thing

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
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.
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 carries a higher duty and using kerosene(domestic heating oil) in a vehicle would be tax evasion.
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.
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
Whale oil early on.
Is there a question here?
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.
Oil combust and release energy stored in chemical form to thermal energy.
It burns cleaner, doesn't have an offensive odor, and in most markets it is cheaper.
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.
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.
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. Cleaning 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.
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.
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.
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.
Sure, but it is way more expensive that heating oil.
