how much money can I save?

If I am heating with fuel oil and use 600 gallons in a normal winter, how much money can I save by switching to Reading anthracite coal?

Assume the cost of fuel oil is $2.00/gal. The cost of Reading coal is $250/ton (bulk) or $300/ton (bagged)

1 ton of Reading coal produces the same amount of BTUs as 200 gal. oil, so you would use 3 tons of Reading coal in a normal winter to replace the 600 gallons of fuel oil.

3 tons BULK coal @ $250/ton = $750 per winter

3 tons BAGGED coal @ $300/ton = $900 per winter

600 gal. oil @ $2/gal = $1,200 per winter

You would save $450 using BULK anthracite per winter.  You would save $300 using BAGGED anthracite per winter
