Fuel is still 10% cheaper than 10 year ago even without adjusting for inflation.

I guess we will know next week what a land war in Europe does to gas prices.

Winter 2022 heating has started. Yesterday I warmed up the house a bit by burning the paper and card board trash I started saving from late July or early august.

I'm thinking it's time to use the coal furnace for water heating. A propylene glycol loop that won't freeze and an old hot water heater seems like the way to go.

This appears to be the correct thread for this:

I think it's a good backgrounder on the rocket stove concept and general design considerations for various use cases.

I was extra-specially pleased when at ?t=214 he cites Aprevecho Institute. Because they are in Cottage Gove, OR.

Aprovecho Research Center- testing and improving biomass cookstoves
[surpising that they are not HTTPS. Browse at your own risk]


https://external-content.duckduckgo....e01&ipo=images

I have their Firefly cookstove/lantern, but it's stored in a bug-out bag so it doesn't get much use. I really like the Argand lamp he has on the desk. It's very similar but from 1780 and solid brass.

I thought that's what you have.

Does it incorporate a pyrolyzer?
