  Yeah, there was a great tank on ebay one time.  On a trailer, pretty and
stainless, labeled Jet A (or B).  Great for those cross country trips with
our vws.  :)  It was only 100 or 200 gal too.
  Furnace/heating oil is, 99% of the time straight #2.  Sometimes it'll be
a blend of #1 and #2 for flowability, just as it is in road fuel.  STOVE oil,

is more of an East coast thing and it's #1.  This is the info I got from our
local distributor.
