DB, yes quite a few "camps" as they call them use kero heaters. Lots of people use them for their garage and workshops too.
Thanks for the pic, that helps explain how it works.

It makes me debate whether I should go next store and see if the lady that has the store up for sale would let me have the pump or at least make her an offer for it.
Thanks for all the info posted on this as I am amazed that a few short months ago we all just walked around it when we took our break off the bikes.

So, was the "Flamo" sign for Kerosene heated rooms, or propane?

Actually you'd be surprised at how much kero is still in use today for heating. It is our main source of heat when at home to supplement our heating oil and stretch those heating dollars. I almost always run into someone at the pumps waiting or getting kerosene.

Kerosene is cheaper than Heating oil ?
I always thought it would be the other way.

If it were a Bowser(I know it is not), and IF it is original paint;

A black one is Kerosene or other.

A red one is Gasoline.

The difference is, the seals, color, & flammability..

Yes D B , at one time Kerosene was cheaper than # 2 oil . Right now , the untaxed , dyed red diesel or #2 is running about 2.38 a gallon if you bought in to a contract back in the early fall.The #1 Kerosene is about 2.99- 3.07 right now . Oh , to run a diesel truck in the winter here , we used to mix a little Kerosene with the diesel . The fuel will turn to jelly here as it gets so thick here in the cold too. Ed Shaver

IF I lived in Cold country, I'd be setting up a Waste Oil Heater. Cooking oils & used motor oil can be had for free most anywhere.
