  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I bought my first 5 Gal. can of kerosene today.At Tractor Supply, it was $50.00. I feel like that was a bit expensive. Am I wrong. It was a sealed can,s0 I was wondering about long term storage.Will it break down over time if its not opened?

    Anybody use one of these? I'm looking for a very sturdy kerosene stove that will safely support a full 6 quart iron dutch oven. Or do you know of an even sturdier kerosene stove? Thanks.

    If given your choice of a kerosene heater or ventless propane for emergency backup which would you rather have?

    I have picked up some kerosene lanterns and I was wondering if kerosene has a shelf life like gas does? I can't find any clear answers on the net. Thanks for the info.

    The one piece of equipment that seems to do it all. Providing light equal to a 60 watt light bulb, enough heat output to heat a medium sized area, the ability to cook and bake, and it sips fuel like a miser. The Aladdin lamp does not get much mention but, in my opinion, it is a must have. I...

    Hello, I want to get a back up heating source because I don't have a fireplace. I am thinking of getting the propane heater called the Big Buddy by Mr. Heater. I don't like the smell of kerosene unless I'm out camping. Is there any good reason why I should get kerosene over propane...

    I've started putting back kerosene recently and now I want to know how long it can last for. Also, I buy it down the local store in one litre bottles and would it be best for me to transfer it into a larger container/s or leave it in the small air-tight bottles? Thanks in advance.
