Outside Tank Heater
Heat is applied to the oil through the heater tube and warms the oil closest to the heater. As the oil absorbs heat it begins to rise in the tank. As the warm oil rises, colder oil moves in to take its place and the cycle continues. As long as heat is applied to the oil it will continue to rise and fall in the tank. There is not a significant rise in overall temperature within the tank, it is the oil movement that helps prevent the oil from gelling. This feature allows you to use winter blend in place of Kerosene.
