Diesel supplies are said to be at red alert low availability in a half dozen southern states. Probably be in the news, soon.
This winter will see heating oil at some level of crisis by Jan. or sooner. Some are lobbying Biden to tap the Northeast heating oil reserve already, which is only a paltry one million gal. Not sure if Pa. would even benefit by that.
im more worried about the truckers, no bulk sales means no job. so thats my concern. i switched to coal right after i bought this house in 2018 and it was 3 something to fill it then and that was too expensive in my book haha

It's a little hard to tell but it looks like you are using the oil gun as a blower with a speed control. Pretty neat! Looks like you have to run it real slow.
