    Hey guys! The next addition to my preps will be a new kerosene heater aaand Dietz lamps. I plan on ordering the lamps early next week and going to the local hardware store for the heater. My question is just how long will kerosene last if stored in a basement in the dark? I feel very safe...

    No, not for freshness... Ive been stocking up on lamp oil, wicks and lanterns. Since I have gallons of the stuff in my closet - I am thinking of moving it into the barn (saftey first). The barn is not insulated. Winters here are brutal and negitive temps are common. My question is, if the...

    I found a lady (her husband left her) selling a 55gal plastic drum of kerosene that she claims is approx 9-10 years old. I can buy the barrel and kero for $80 which is a great deal, if the kerosene is ok. My intended uses are as a backup cooking source and as a backup source of heat as I...

    I am thinking of storing kerosene as a back up heat source should we ever be out of electricity, and my backup generators run out of stored gas. I have been watching Craig's List for a used 250 gal tank , but so far no luck, and I can't find any companies in my area that sell them, so for...
