There was a picture of a gas station posting fuel prices. Regular unleaded $1.99, Plus $2.09 then kerosene $2.69. Question is, Who uses kerosene anymore? Especially in mass quantities enough to be posted at a gas station?

To my knowledge there's only one station that has a pump for kerocene around here. For what it's worth it's also at the big oil station where you can buy several kinds of fuels by the barrel and where a lot of fleets fill up.
Other than space heaters I have no clue why you'd need that much. I guess you could run a diesel truck off of it, but I think (not sure) that diesel is cheaper anyway, not to mention it'd be illegal to drive said truck on the roads with out paying the road tax.

This is strange. Such a diverse group of us guys. I bet Ralph knows. You know I could look it up. But watch these guys, lurkers. They are some pretty smart dudes, with a good heart also.

K-1 Kerosene happens to be the stuff advertised as fuel injector/carb cleaner-just add a pint to the tank when you fill up and it'll clean up the ol 4 wheeler real nice and no harm done !!! kerosene can be burned in diesels just happpens to be a cleaner, more refined grade of diesel :D

Had one customer wanted to run their oil furnace off kero.
I'm sure some people use kero heaters to heat homes with rather than fix central heat.

I use to use a lot of that stuff in the lanterns & head lamps when i was a gold miner in mine shafts.But that was a long ,long time ago. I don`t think electricty was invented yet.
