  • Not as long as you'd think. We can easily burn 5 gals overnight being conservative - cold!
    The oil company has the usage profile history. Always budget short so you don't run it dry.
    The bottom of the tank can have sludge (solids) in it and clog your sprayer and filters.

  • You shouldn't turn it off. That takes it longer to come back up to temperature when you turn it back on, and you are at risk of your pipes freezing if it gets too cold.

  • You should not cut off the heat entirely. The pipes can burst.

  • Coast more to heat up a cold room. Then to keep the room consistency warm. We never turn our heat off. 1) for the pipe not to bust. 2). I do not like to come home to a cold house.
