I used to live in New York State and, as is usual in that area, had oil heat. I believe heating oil is the same thing as diesel fuel and was contemplating getting a deisel powered generator and hooking it up to my oil tank. I figured that it would give me as good as an unlimited fuel supply for the generator, the fuel would always be fresh, and the generator could power the oil burner for heat and hot water. Water was supplied by a well whose pump would also be powered by the generator.

I now live in Texas and have a 250 gallon LP tank. Maybe there are LP powered generators.
Somebody's nuts. I don't know whether it's me or them, but somebody is definitely nuts. I just wished I knew, so I'd know, you know?
