Thanks for the info but......I live in the south, Chances are local plumbing folks here have never heard of heating with oil unless you count standing over a fish fryer drinking beer........

Stop by your local plumbing house and ask them for the old boilers they take out.....many are not leakers, they get changed out for efficiency-sake. An older oil boiler is what you want anyways, one with wide flue passages since the fuel you're going to 'feed' the boiler is sure to run with soot. The plumbing houses should gladly give you one since they have to pay to have them taken away (scrap yard, etc). Ask for an American Standard "Double-Door" boiler especially, almost nothing can plug that boiler and yet it will still put out heat.
