Wanting to make an efficient burner
« on: September 18, 2020, 04:59:30 am »
Hi guys,

I have a brake drum pot belly heater out in the shed and looking to run it on waste oil. Be it motor oil, cooking oil and everything inbetween.

I was hoping to have a drip system without any forced air but after running it I dont think im getting it hot enough as its quite smokey.

Am I able to run a drip system without forced air?

Im not 100% sure how to run it but if i run it slow theres a lack of flames and if I run it fast its a bit smokier.

Attached is my fireplace and burning pot
