Check your burner manual.
Beckett is O.K. with diesel (no mention of kerosene though).

What's the brand of your burner?

Diesel or Kero

If you normally burn heating oil (I don't mean kerosene), either will work ok. I wouldn't suggest using kero long term because the pump is probably old & kero can be tough on pumps due to it's lack of lubrication.

Wink

The diesel will just cost you more than your PINK fuel oil is all. Thats for the road tax. That KEROSCENE here I saw it at H/D for $34.00 for a 5 gal can.
