Micro blog #1 – Fuel bills

Our oil tank is diminishing quickly, especially with the sub zero temps out these last few days. Methinks a tank will last only 2 months which is too bad! Cost $650 to fill it. The gauge isn’t quite reliable though, when full it only measures 3/4 … maybe the float is partially submerged, or maybe when the oil is that high, it just can’t go that far… ┬áLikely we’ll fill up before we leave for Ontario and make sure the temps are turned down so as not to use much. I SO wish the landlord would allow us to have programmable thermostats! We could easily save so much oil that way. I’ll probably follow up with a ‘post-winter’ review on oil consumption. Should be interesting to see what we’re going through. Granted, from reading forums and such, our consumption doesn’t look TOO far out of whack.. still, would like to conserve more.
