Lubrication Update

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Lubricated my powervent with Mobil1 0W20 fully synthetic,ran all winter with no problems.This is my old powervent that got noisy last spring,bought a new motor but it turned out to be the wrong one,so cleaned and lubed the old one and it has been great ever since.6 bucks for a quart of Mobil1 is a lot less than SWG oil.

Good to know. That tiny SWG oil bottle is TOO expensive in comparison.
