I'm relatively new to Missoula, and this might seem kind of weird, but I've been unable to find a place where I can buy K1 kerosene for a small garage heater. Lowe's has 5 gallon metal cans already filled, but it comes to $8.80 a gallon.

Is there some place where I can pump just 5 gallons into my own can?

Thanks.

JetA is very close to kerosene, - your can buy JetA at the FBO at the airport (Private Plane side of airport), But there are additives in JetA that your garage heater may not like to burn.

There are a few "Gas" station that do sell it. But they are few and far between.



https://www.minutemanaviation.net/ JetA @ $4/Gal but call them before you go, to see if they can do 5 gals. with out a "service" charge.

#1 diesel fuel is very close to kerosene. Check the manual for your heater to see what alternative fuels are usable in it.
