Fill Your Waste Oil Heater With Free Fuel

Obtaining fuel for your waste oil heater—service stations are more than happy to give it to you.

| September/October 1979

All over the country, owners of MOTHER EARTH NEWS' Waste-Oil Heater are stocking up on free heating fuel at this very moment!

As the weather turns cold, it's a sure bet that the "gasoline crisis" of this past summer will turn into a national shortage of winter heating fuels. Worse yet, while the gas pump problem has inconvenienced lots of folks, a lack of home-heating energy could be dangerous. However, as we pointed out last year  there's a way to obtain free fuel to heat your garage, workshop, or home, and that source of energy—used motor oil—can be burned in our waste oil heater, which you can build for a total investment of about $36 and no more than one day of your time!

Better yet, most service stations are still letting their used crankcase oil go—by the 55-gallon barrelful—to anyone willing to haul it off.

So take a tip from us. If you haven't already done so, build your own "free fuel furnace" so you can stock up with a winter's supply of recycled "liquid heat" before the snow begins to fall!
