Fuel oil No. 1 and No. 2 fuel are both used for residential heating purposes. The No. 2 is slightly more expensive but the fuel gives more heat per gallon used.
The No. 1 fuel oil is used in vaporizing pot-type burners. The No. 2 is used in atomizing gun-type and rotary fuel oil burners.
Great care must be taken with heavier grades of fuel used in oil burners to ensure that the oil is supplied with the proper atomizing temperature. If the temperature is too low the oil will not atomize and evaporate and the burner will not operate efficiently.
