I fired up about a week ago.  It's mid morning and warmed up to about 40, high today is a tropical 60.  Burning through some pine and poplar from trees that were taken down around the property.  In a couple weeks, I should be into the "good stuff".

Hopefully good results.

Happy wife here as well, fired up the waste oil boiler in the shop, takes awhile to get 700 gallons up to temp but its getting there. Iím looking forward to a ridiculously long and hot shower tonight, neck is being a booger again, perhaps an MRI next week if they can find a place that does sedation and takes my insurance. Laid in one of things for almost 90 minutes last time, ainít doing it again awake.

About how long does it take for waste oil to heat that much water to 180?

Takes the G200 about 4 hours to heat almost 600 gallons to 180.

I run about 3 quarts or so an hour in it which is only good for around 120000-130000 BTU. I can run it full blast which is 5 quarts an hour but stack temps go up considerably and you get a little black smoke out the stack. It took about 7 hours starting at 58 degree water.

Depends on how much I feel like collecting. One of these days I have about four barrels to go get.
